3.2 km warm-up with 3 strides

Halfmarathon in 1:26:27 hrs. The course was 20% on asphalt, 80% over dirty roads and even gras. Very happy with the result (last half was 1:29:14), it's the next step in the right direction!

Outstanding 1/2 Mary Mr Martin and a 3rd place trip to the podium for a medal !!!

A 1/2 Mary in under 90 minutes is great! And you are over 1000 miles for the half way point for the year on the mileage board....congrats!
