Well done to the small contingent of Tyne Bridge Harriers who competed in this year’s Amsterdam half-marathon.
Despite the bitterly cold northerly wind, all the members ran superbly, with a couple even picking up PB’s.
John Tollitt: 1:29:24
Kate Meek: 2:02:26 PB
Sue Mullinger 2:08:17 PB
Vicki Deritis 2:13:51
Janine Swail 2:22:08
Full race report to follow.
(yes, I know the logo says marathon, but there isn’t one for the half-marathon – DD )
My time was actually a minute slower, 1.29.25, but I was pleased with that as I was targetting 1.30. I didnt think I would make it, especially when I passed the 1.35 pacer about 2/3 of the way round. What I was pleased with was finishing strongly, with my last full mile being my fastest. Definitely a good PB half marathon as it is so flat and lots of good straight sectons (plus a finish on a track of an Olympic Stadium.
Well done all. Sounded like fun
