Wagon & Horses Half Marathon

25/08/2013

Les Hill and Lisa Finlay travelled to Lancaster for the Wagons and Horses Half marathon.  It was a warm day, and both were looking forward to a flat and scenic course. 

Unfortunately however, things did not go to plan as Les felt the twinges of a hamstring injury after a mile. He battled on to mile five before deciding that discretion was the better part of valour, and stopped racing. He was still able to complete another few miles running back so at least got some more training miles in the bank!

Lisa was hoping to run under 80 minutes and was well on schedule by 8 miles. Unfortunately, she missed a sharp turn while negotiating her way round a family of cyclists, and ended up doing an extra 0.8 of a mile.  Even worse, it was uphill!! This meant that any hopes of a PB were gone, but Lisa decided to do her own time checks over the half marathon distance while chasing down as many people as possible. In the end, she finished as second lady, just over half a minute behind the winner in 1:24:34. Although disappointed not to get a new PB, Lisa was encouraged by her run, and maybe that extra mile will help her marathon training!!
