Number 4 - Bedford Half Marathon 09/12/07

Another one completed and am getting back towards my race pace.

I love doing this race, it is just before the Christmas mayhem starts and is a great way to work of some stress.
The race is very rural and is challenging in the first 7-8 miles, but then is mainly down hill to the finish. It is really well organised and everything is provided for.

The only downside was the state of the car park, some people were having trouble getting out.

Great race, highly recommended

Number 3 - Norwich City Half-Marathon

Well here it is race number 3 at last.
It has only taken me 6 months to get here.

I did enjoy this race, it is a nice course (2 laps) and is flat except for a sharp rise at the end of each lap to get back into the stadium.

It is very well organised and there is plenty of water stations and marshals.

The only thing I would say is that access to the changing areas got exceedingly muddy and boggy.
