Highway Star - Deep Purple
'I love it, I need it' - Gillan, Blackmore, Paice, Lord, Glover & Anderson
I had a great time yesterday, despite a very early start, at The Kent Roadrunner Marathon organised by my good friend Ian J Berry. It's been a race that I'd been looking at having a good run at because of the nature of the 'flatish' multi-looped course.
Beating my 3.55 target by 11 seconds in 3.54.49 was most satisfying and I was actually at halfway in 1.53 but was slowed by the heat of the day and the long drag up to the start/finish line some 17 times! Anyway, I'm really chuffed as it was it was my 5th 26.2 miler in the last 16 days.
It's certainly food for thought and a great day of marathon running and socialising as I saw lots of my old marathon mates, including Brian Webber who looked after the runners during the Flora 1000 Marathon Challenge back in 2003! Happy Days...
and more tomorrow.
