Going on a recce

All people ever tell me about the Windsor half marathon is that I’m mad and it’s hilly.  So today, I thought that I would go to check it out.

Obviously, I didn’t run the whole course.  In fact, I ran very little of it, because I kept getting lost.  But I did run in the great park, and I did run eight miles.  And though it’s true that the park isn’t flat, the hills that I found weren’t as bad as I thought they might be.

Which is good.

    Here are my thoughts on the matter:

    1. Hills are all relative.
    2. For every up there is a down.
    3. At least the hill on the ‘Royal Mile’ or whatever it is will be iconic!

    I can’t decide if you”re an inspiration or just totally mad. Little from column a, little from column b I think…

    When is the race? Will you adjust your time expectations to account for undulations?
