This could be the shortest post I’ve ever written, but I wanted to post it for my own record as much as anything.
Anyone who has read my Forest of Dean half marathon post will know how hard I found it. But also that I was very pleased (and very shocked) by my time. When I saw the finish time, I hoped my chip time would scrape in at just below 2 hours.
I found out my chip time today and I’m pleased to say that I came in at 1 hour 59 minutes and 34 seconds!
I am so happy with that time, I just had to share it. Because I may never achieve a time as good again.
I also discovered I came 658th overall (out of 1,077 runners), 147th out of the 382 women runners and 49th in my category (female veterans aged 35-44). Yes, I am a veteran runner!
Veteran runners are cool, though. Three out of the first four women across the line were in my veteran category.
