Sheffield Half Marathon 2019-1

 

On Sunday 14th April - this is about half a mile from the start and already these four guys are ahead of the pack - two of them end up in the first four. It started out as a fine day but cold - only about 5C, then the clouds came in and it seemed to get colder!

Did you run, Tom?
Tom Wilson: My running days are long gone, Ray - although I did run six or seven half marathons years ago, including the Sheffield half-marathon.
Great that you kept up with them Tom....Pardon ?
Tom Wilson: I just waited here until they caught up with me, Frank smile
Ils sont très courageux.
Tom Wilson: Vraiment, Martine!
Nice shot! From what I understand runners prefer it chilly!
Tom Wilson: Indeed! When I ran the Sheffield half marathon many years ago it was on the hottest day of the year - people were dropping like flies!

They have a definite look of determination about them Tom
Tom Wilson: They need it for the next 13 miles smile
I'm sure all the runners were glad for a cool day, Tom!
Tom Wilson: Oh, yes, they certainly would!
I wouldn't even get that far!
Tom Wilson: Me neither, these days - although I did run six or seven half marathons 30 years ago.

The weather was good then... not too hot. I great shot of these athletes.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Astrid.

The chap on the right looks as if he is running in his underpants.
Tom Wilson: He does rather, now you draw my attention!

Running is not a pleasure - see, none of them is smiling.
Tom Wilson: They keep their smiles for the finish line smile
Running is not something I've ever had the strength and stamina to do but I do admire those who have.
Tom Wilson: It's a great way of dealing with stress!

I admire the Marathon runner. You surely did take part in such a run as a younger man?
Tom Wilson: Indeed I did smile I ran the Sheffield half-marathon and five or six others between about 48 and 55 - I was a late starter smile
good action shot Tom....petersmile
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Peter.

Probably good weather for running. The half marathon was my distance. The chap in green top should be disqualified; he's flying.
Tom Wilson: The half was mine, too - did six or seven of them in my late 40s, early 50s. PB - 1hr 43m
