Number 15 - Southend Half Marathon

Well after 8 weeks I of racing every 2 weeks I finally get to the Southend Half Marathon. Its a great race, great atmosphere and support and it is nice running by the sea. It was a hot day and there were loads of water stations and sponges en route so there was no problems there.

I enjoyed this race, and is definitely a flat PB race.

The organisation was faultless and had no problems parking or getting out.


Number 14 - Edinburgh Marathon

What a great race, the weather was perfect, the course is lovely (though could have done without the wind), everyone was really friendly and encouraging.

The only down point was the start, it was too narrow for people to drop bags and get to the start and queue for the toilets, there just was not enough space. However, everything else was well organised.

The course is flat and PB potential, though if it is windy there is a head wind for the first 18 miles, this does help on the last 6 miles though.

Will definitely do again,
