I went through to the Hawaiian half marathon at Aloha or should that be Alloa on Sunday with Martin Holt.
The aim was to run as fast as I could as a replacement for a long training run.
Mixed weather on the way there and it stayed dry for most of the race with the odd biting wind in your face moment.
Managed a respectable 1.31.37 which for me is a PB by almost 5 minutes and sub 7 pace.
Came 237th out of 1250+ so in the top 20%. Another new for me.
Very pleased and only 2 long runs before tapering starts for London
