Noel Grimley2nd Half Marathon race in 2 weeks, 2nd PB too. Bournemouth half and finished sub 1:35 which was my aim. Not sure of exact time but an enjoyable race and post race
meet up at the Mad Cucumber.

Just seen my times for the Bournemouth half marathon. 1:33:28 and placed 80/2857 and 9th in my age group. Happy days.
Simon Lee Was a really good run at the Bournemouth Half yesterday, and nice to enjoy some vegan cake and meet others after the race. My result was 1:32:02 placed 64th. New PB.
Was really pleased with the way I ran it as well. Started slow and picked up the pace for the whole way pretty much; making my way through the field. I might have done better if I had managed to visit the loo before the race; I was carrying a bit of extra weight.
Catherine HansfordFinished in 2.00.56 states on FB post that it was great to meet you and well done. The queues for the toilets was diabolical before the start – I had to leg it afterwards and work my way through a bit. I think Noel passed me on his way to start as I was still queuing!
