I'm back for the Tunbridge Wells Half Marathon. This year there is no Richard and no Pete. It is pouring with rain at the start and I have the same top and hat as last year, just a different coloured pair of leggings. I've started to get a collection of race technical T shirts now but in this weather it is the Ron Hill thermal top that wins out again. I don't mind the rain, the conditions make me feel a bit more hardcore and I have a decent race. Unlike last year I can run up Spring Hill al the way and I take a couple of minutes off my time with 1.40.27. It has rained pretty much all the way. Considering the course profile it's not bad and the 1.40 barrier is getting closer.
