Tomorrow a number of Striders will be lining up in Bath for what is a major half marathon in the regional racing calendar.
The route for me is not inspiring – effectively two loops leading you out of the city and, albeit a flat route, the relatively small amount of supporters you see once you are out of the city doesn’t help.
However, Bath is a big and busy race. It’s ideal training for big marathons like London – it helps you get used to the crowds, a packed starting line-up and the feel of a city based race, which is always different to more rural runs.
It’s also good for PBs because it’s flat. The goody bag isn’t bad either.
If you’re running tomorrow – good luck, I may see you there.
