Birmingham Half Marathon

Birmingham Half Marathon Nike+ Stats


Took Part in the Birmingham Half Marathon a couple of days ago.  First time running 13 miles, well without any weight strapped to my back anyway 😉 So was originally planning to use this as a bench mark. My target was to do it in just under 2 hours. my actual time was 2hrs 0mins 52sec … so not far off


Above shows the place that i came, 3428th – which isnt too bad considering that close to 10000 people took part
