The Prestonpans Half Marathon

Myself and my mate Mark ran the Prestonpans half marathon today, the weather held and it was quite enjoyable. The hard part was finding our way to the start line 🙂 we had to stop a few times in Prestonpans to ask people where the run was starting from, when we eventually got near, it wasn’t particularly well signed.

Apart from that, the run was very well organised and I really enjoyed it, definately one to put in the calendar next year. I don’t know my clock time, but going by my trusty Garmin I did it in about 1 hour 35 minutes. Not too shabby considering I was out the night before for a birthday meal and a few beers.

This is probably my last run of the year, I think I’ll be joining a gym when I get back from the states. Planning to do a few more runs next year though.

Freshnlow Glasgow Half Marathon

Did my first half marathon on Sunday, the FreshnLow Glasgow Half Marathon and I’ve got to say, I really enjoyed it. The training involved wasn’t quite as strenuous or time consuming as a full marathon and on the day the weather held, it was actually quite nice (not too warm, cold or wet) I definately think I’ll do it next year, you can find the full race results here 🙂
