This one turned out to be a real struggle. 12 laps of trail, grass and mud around the lake at Delapre Abbey in Northampton. A lovely brute, but tough in windy conditions. Claire ran the half and I managed to just beat her, clocking my first half in 2:30 but I then slowed down to cross the line in 4:19:35. My GPS watch recorded 900 metres short and as others were saying the same I made up the distance after crossing the line, for a more realistic 4:25:28.
