just sitting here 20 miles from the start listening to the wind howling and the rain lashing down................
Good point - how to recognise folks - I should be easy - the old ,white haired and bearded codger cowering from the elements.
Bunny Phobiawe may be on the same part of the course at some stage - hope so!!!
I believe that the emminently recognisable Rich K might provide a focal point for folk if they so wished?
TS - is the local forecast for tomorrow any better than the one I'm getting from the Met Office? Can you remember what it was last year? I know it was windy but have managed to erase the details though I'm quite sure it didn't hail at any point!
35 miles away - wind really picked up here too. Forecast suggests that it will have calmed down by the morning.
First 7 miles will be into the wind tomorrow so get drafting to save energy and then motor on the way back.
Good luck everyone. I'll be chasing a sub 1:45.
Opps, been a bit busy LMH so haven't been on the thread for a while, will look out for you at the start, I'm the tubby boy in the white long sleeved top with an Ilkley harriers vest over the top, sub 1.45 here we come !! Wind forecast seems to have dropped a bit so let's hope it picks up behind us on the way back !!!
Beders - are you on for a pacing job then? You'd be an ideal windbreak https://us.v-cdn.net/6027274/uploads/forum/smilies/smile_smiley.gif' /> I'm 1461. Leaving now.
Good luck all!
I got a half-marathon PB! Definitely helped by the chip-timing as it took me quite a while to get over the line - seemed busier than last year?
The support from the marshalls was brilliant, especially in the last couple of miles when I really needed it!
Hope everyone else had a good race.
a one second pb for me, God that hurt
Top organisation as always, thanks Knavesmire harriers
the wind wasnt that bad psc, well, niot the wind outside anyroad
Hi everyone. Well done to you all. I managed to get a pb today too - 1:41:24 which is 3 mins off my previous best. Now sitting here abolsutely shattered!
Hipps - I had a couple of slow miles which I put down to the wind - 4 and 5 were the worst.
Well done Dippycat! Great running.
LMH, I did struggle a bit around mile 4 to 5, i just assumed that was me being stupid and doing the first 2 miles at 8.5 mm
LMH - Well done https://us.v-cdn.net/6027274/uploads/forum/smilies/smile_smiley.gif' />
Hippo - another sub 2hr half to add to your collection https://us.v-cdn.net/6027274/uploads/forum/smilies/smile_smiley.gif' />
and a 10 mile and 10k pb en route
Hippo i looked over the place for you, at 8.5 min miles theres no wonder i did'nt see you.
My days of PBs have long since gone even though the conditions were just about ideal, and the Marshalls were brilliant although the one that told me near the end that i was looking good was being too kind https://us.v-cdn.net/6027274/uploads/forum/smilies/disappointed_smiley.gif' />
well, erm, it was nowt like your time Dippycat
but, ill be looking for a 10 miler and a 10k to do, thats for sure
Hippo - you must come to Silverstone and knock some more seconds of your half pb. I will be getting some more Fetch point soon then https://us.v-cdn.net/6027274/uploads/forum/smilies/smile_smiley.gif' />
