BUPA Great North Run 2010

Last Sunday I took part and completed my first half marathon, The 30th BUPA Great North Run as part of a team from TBWA\Manchester.  Everyone did really well with their respective runs and as I type we have raised £1,765.00 for Henshaws, Society for Blind People.  If you still want to donate, its not too late and every penny is really appreciated.

I managed to just sneak inside my target of sub 2 hours, with a time of 1 hour 58 minutes 09 seconds, finishing an overall postion of 10497 out of 54000 runners.  So only any hour behind Haile Gebrselassie!

Split times:
5k:  00:25:05
10k: 00:51:55
15k: 01:19:31
Finish: 01:58:09

PS. Thanks to the lovely lady who gave me an ice pop at around the 11 mile mark, not sure I would have made it to the end without the sugar hit!
