The Big Half

Race Date: Sunday, 10/03/2019
Race Distance: Half Marathon

A blustery run around the less scenic parts of the London Marathon course in reverse, starting near Tower Bridge we ran underground through the Limehouse Link to Canary Wharf, back to Tower Bridge, then through Rotherhithe and Canada Water on the way to Greenwich. The winds were sufficiently strong that on occasion I almost came to a complete halt or was caught off guard by sudden crosswinds in the first half, then struggled in the second half when the wind was meant to be behind us. Remarkably there were PBs for several Windmilers who clearly coped much better than I did!
