Half Marathon PB's all around

This weekends half marathons produced 3 PB's and a CB from Long Eaton Runners. Just down the A50 was the Uttoxeter half marathon where Phil Abbott broke the 1:26 mark for the first time, taking over a minute off his previous best with a run of 1:25:53.

Not to be outdone Damian Cowlishaw chalked up an even bigger improvement with a 2 minute PB setting a new best time of 1:40:12 - the sub 100 minutes is bound to broken the next time out given the hilly nature of the course.

Also at Uttoxeter Duncan Gedge set a course best of 1:50:17, almost 2 minutes quicker than the time he set in 2008.

Not wanting the boys to get all the plaudits, Kate Turner bettered her half marathon time by a whopping 3 minutes 29 seconds in the Hanover Half Marathon. She now has to better 1:54:26 in order to get a new PB. With improvements on that scale it wont take long.
