the bristol half marathon seemed to redefine the meaning of a hilly course with the climb from mile 7 through mile 10.5! in what would mostly be viewed as a downhill(!) course, the one major extended climb in the middle of the race made for one tough run.
my time goal going into the race was a relatively "easy" 1:50 - and because i walked some of mile 10, missed that target by 20 seconds! despite coming in as one of my slowest half marathons, i still had a great time running it - and definitely plan on coming back!
i'll post a race report in a couple of days :D
here are the race results via coolrunning.
the rest of my photos are up on facebook.
