World Wide Festival Of Races

13 10 2009

Great run for my first WWFOR half marathon which I did with Darren Houston, a fellow member of Runcast.TV.

Great running weather 13 degrees, a gently cooling breeze and lots of autumnal colours to look at. We did the route of the Lisburn half marathon which usually takes place in June, we were both familiar with the route so luckily there were no wrong turns.

I hadn’t been able to find an organised race this weekend but then 2 days ago i noticed that a giants causeway race was taking place this weekend, but by then it was too late (and expensive) to register. But it was good to do the run with Darren who I hadn’t met before, and we shared a common interest in certain podcasts – 4 feet running, phedippidations and sceptics guide to the universe to name a few.

Darren and I run at a similar pace and we finished the run comfortably in just over 2 hours. Darren has done a few ultra marathons so i’m sure 13.1 wasn’t much of a stretch. It was good to have a real running partner than a virtual running partner for a change and we’re both looking forward to doing it again some time.

Well done to everyone else who took part in the WWFOR this weekend. looking forward to hearing all the race reports. Click this link for a mini podcast race report –  Listen to this episode
