So Sunday, 5th April should have been The Devizes Half Marathon. This along with many other races had been postponed until later in the year.
On Monday, 6th April at 7.21 am I crossed the start line for my solo “ Not The Devizes 1/2 half “ .
The course was a mixture of country lanes and road taking in Lacock, Gastard, Whitley, Shaw and Melksham, the weather conditions were perfect.
Race Highlights ( in no particular order ).
1. Seeing two care workers in Lacock outside a house putting on thier PPE and stopping briefly to clap them and tell them I loved them.
2. Bumping into Mr Biggs and his dog somewhere near Gastard and getting some motivational words as I ran past whilst social distancing. (a well needed boost and my fastest split time! )
3. Not being eaten alive by the Lacock Alligators. ( Who knew!! )
In 2hrs 7 mins the race was over, no medal, no T-shirt just the gift of running, good health and avoiding this horrible virus.
Stay safe and run….
