Ross Peers East Cambs Half Marathon
Sunday 19th May 2013

A good sized herd of us blue and white deer trotted over to Soham for the East Cambs Half Marathon on Sunday. Some fantastic positions and paces were had with Sullivan Smith in overall second place (1:14:19), John Oakes galloping to win his section (1:20:33) and Claire Sullivan PBing all the way to become 2nd Female. And congratulations to everyone since despite the breeze it was demandingly muggy and sunny.

It was really well serviced race; a wonderfully enthusiastic Council VIP started us and handed us our medals at the finish and there was even a bossy motorbike patrolling the highways for us. There are a few course photos that to the uninitiated may just look like wonky pictures of Fen roads but maybe they'll be of use to those who consider it next year. Completely forgot to get any at the finish line oops!

At the starting horn, unfortunately I jumped like a startled cat, legs splayed. And Charlie said he jumped too hehe so I wouldn't have felt so silly had it not been for the fact that my thighs slammed shut like clams and it was all I could do to stumble out of the way. But against sensible judgement I kept going and managed to calm them down over the first few miles to do a time Im happily surprised at (1:50:58). This breathing hard over a long distance business is hard work!
