Barns Green Half Marathon – Dave’s Report

Ten Henfield Joggers took part in the Barns Green Half Marathon today.  I think it would be fair to say that despite the almost perfect running conditions we all found it pretty tough.  Darren and Ralph both suffered calf muscle problem with Ralph having to pull out around 5 miles in. I suffered shoulder problems (strangely my legs were fine) and could hardly lift my arms, let alone turn the steering wheel driving home.  However it was a lovely route and brilliantly organised.  The crowds were great and there was even a steel band playing on one corner.  I think we all enjoyed it in retrospect, though if you asked us just after finishing you may have got a very different answer!  Before and after photos below (after courtesy of Emma)
