Barcelona Half-Marathon

February 17, 2017

Great four days in the lovely city. On the day it was mild at 13c but very windy and threatening to rain. Just under 16,000 ran, including the 8 of us from the club. We were supported by Laura Kent and Sheena’s husband & son, Paul & Ois.


Please see below pictures. Unfortunately only have the one of all eight of us in civvies.

Results were pretty much as expected, though I was expecting to be in high 1.40 hrs as I have started to feel form coming back since Linda Franks. Indeed, I was through 5 miles 90 seconds quicker than I did that race. Explanation for me finding myself having to walk at times now evident - I woke yesterday to a chest infection and temperature!!

Official Results (chip):

Ian Smith: 1.49.52 Hrs. Mins. Secs. Recently rejoined us. Was a member a couple of years ago but is now a much improved runner. Big personal best (PB) for him.

Linda Younger:1.51.22 hrs. A rare race and her first half for over 5 years. Beat me for the second and last time this year.

Dave Aguirre:1.51.59 hrs. New member, Dave has only been running for a few months. Only races prior to this were Guy Fawkes & Linda Franks.

Mike Younger: 1.56.29 hrs. A personal worst (PW) by 8 minutes and over 18 minutes outside his best. On the way back though!

Lindy Fouracre: 1.59.38 hrs. Another new member. Her third half and her first sub 2 hours!

Sophie Bissett: 2.08.23 hrs. Yet another new member, persuaded into entering by mum Sheena. Sophie has only been running for 3 or 4 months.

Sam Robinson: 2.19.05 hrs. Another steady run by Sam. She is now looking forward to speed sessions and Bredon Hill runs.

Sheena Moseley: 2.20.14 hrs. Sheena was feeling a little under par, suffering from quite a cough, but soldiered on.
