Day 10 – Another Twelve Miler and the Return to Barcelona is Sealed

Today I ran almost the same route as Sunday. It makes for a good run aside from the mad national speed limit section in the middle!

Another marathon has made it to the list as well. I’m returning to run Barcelona for a second time, but a marathon this time. In January of this year I ran the half marathon and set a great PB of 1h37m in Barcelona. Here’s the whole Chicken Free adventure story if you’re interested, it’s one of my favourite blog posts ever! I’m hoping the city will be as good to me again and help me shave a little more off the marathon PB. Barcelona is probably my favourite city and I’m looking forward to going back there, but to run a marathon there will be really quite exciting stuff. Shame it’s months away!

Speaking of half marathons, I found this bit of a statistic quite amusing…Just look at how much difference shaving off a half hour from your Great North Run time can make, it’s quite amazing how many people arrive between 1h29m and 1h59m. Somewhere around 11,000! Click the pic–>

So, I nearly have a whole T-Shirt of events and dates ready to print…just a couple more to nail down.

More running again soon!
