After a 12 hour overnight bus ride and around 26 hours recovery, I ran a 2:29:08 Half Marathon last Sunday. As a multiday runner I am always a little torn between wanting to run a shorter race faster and getting more time on my feet for training purposes. Last year I ran 2:29:36 in cold conditions. This year the temperature was a comfortable 6C on a bright sunny morning, run on a loop that was just over 1km long, in a nice park in Nish, Serbia. I started my year with this race last year and after 414 days of running have used it to start my racing year again.
