Binz Half Marathon

So Saturday Tsotleho, Uta and I went out to Binz for the half marathon. We thought it would be a quick course but its a hilly trail race.. nice route.. basically sandy forest trails.

With good prize money, 6590, 450 and 250 euros for 1st 2nd 3rd there was a good chance of a strong field.. which there was. I came 6th, 1:18:57 just felt awful throughout but 5th was a good 3 mins ahead so that wasn' going to happen anyway.. nice area. Great to get some sun for once.

Worst I've felt in a race for a long time, couldn't even hit my marathon pace on the flats so maybe hard training, last weeks race caught up.. Tsotleho won in 1:09:02 which was a great time for the route.
