Helsby Runners 4 Villages half marathon -i'm back to 1hr 50

Really a good day. Though I wanted to achieve a sub 1hour 50minute half marathon , i missed the goal by around 47 seconds. Following 2013 of my best mileage ever, and a few weeks on good training during January 2014 i thought i would give the sub 1 hour 50 minute half marathon a good try. A cool bright dry day looked good for racing.Big crowd at the start, and good chat with running friends, Anthony, Susanne,and meeting others during and after the race, Jenny, Alex, Becca, Kev and many more. A tough race but with some good banter with fellow runners and determination i was not far off the 1hr50 and put in some effort over the last couple of miles after the cheeky hill at mile 10. but not to be sub 1:50 but sub 1:51 is satisfying. And also today RIP Running hero Sir Chris Chataway.
