Completed my first half marathon in Brighton yesterday, despite the gale force winds, I did it sub 2 hours, so i'm really chuffed and I can honestly say I loved it, already started looking for others to do. Thanks to you guys on here for the tips and advice over the past few months.

Well done GSK, great effort and there is nothing better than finishing your first half or full marathon.

Cheers JD. Gotta say I'm still beaming about it, wish it had taken me less than my 42 years to do one, but ill definitely make up for lost time and do others.

Hi Gary, found this on you tube that might interest you. Brighton Half from 11min 10 secs on. You certainly had a tough run in the weather conditions. Well done again. If you are at WembleY On Sunday give us a wave. All the best.

Stafford Half tomorrow is still on unless there’s a last minute change of heart. Depressing to think it could be the last organised event for some time.

Least running is a relatively safe activity!

Bath Half is on tomorrow as well, criminally stupid in my opinion.

Sorry for the delay in seeing this Boston. Thanks for the link, it was tough because of the winds, but amazingly, couldn't have gone any better, partly due to the strong winds being behind our backs for the finish !!
