PP Grand Union Canal Half Marathon 2014 and next weekend

Somehow the rain held off for the 8th running of the Purple Patch Grand Union Canal Half marathon. With lightning and thunder passing through the south east over night, the tow path along the course was a little bit puddly, but otherwise in very good condition. No frost and no rain during the race either - made for perfect conditions along the lovely canal paths, bridges and locks.

Another excellent event from the Purple Patch stable that goes with the Down-tow-up-flow half marathon and the Maidenhead Half marathon - to name a few...

Did very well to win the ladies race in a sharp 1:28

All is good

Martin won the mens race in 1:18:45, five seconds after I made it to the finish line

Proper celebration arms and shout !!
