Halstead & Essex Marathon
Sunday 11th May 2014
Christof Schwiening

After running this hard last year, I agreed to pace my brother-in-law round the course. His previous PB was 4:35 at Halstead. We set-off at 6 min per km, with light rain, towards the back of the pack. I was wearing a back-pack with various supplies, nicely padded trainers and leggings. The course was great, just like last year! It was well marshalled with lots of drinks and food as we made our way up and down hills through the English countryside. It was very pleasant, but I have never spent so much time on my feet before and I did find it tough towards the end. Calvin got his PB and I got to experience just how hard a marathon can be for those in the +4 group - running faster, if you can do it, is a completely different experience.
