Good things about the "testing" tunbridge wells half today - Kelly Holmes at the start and finish (so small, v. pretty)
I finished it and didn't walk up any hills
scenic Kent villages
friendly marshalls, people handing out drinks, incongruous cheerleaders

bad things - driving incessant rain and wind
running in a bin bag
ankle deep puddles that went on and on and on - basically like running in a creek
three loo stops (unheard of for me) in the dripping woods, brambles galore
number so wet it fell off

net result -rubbish time of 1.53 - more than ten minutes slower than my PB
but he he! I did it, onwards and upwards
