    Spotted you as well Julian. John Dade was also running, but not sure how he did as we left early on.
    I was running with wooden legs as a result of a recce for the Jura fell race late last week – scary stuff even in good weather.

    Good to see a few Otley faces, weather amazing, if not a little too hot in places. This was my virgin half-marathon and in honour of my recently born son, Alexander – thank you for all the broken nights sleep, it has really enhanced the training!

    Fantastic day – perfect conditions (if you didn’t run too fast).
    I was really pleased to be able to get around in one piece.
    Great results for Matt and Simon. We all got our excuses in before the race – looks like I’m the only one who needed to.
