Some half marathon stats

Saturday at Islay was my 75th half marathon. Interestingly (at least for me, and for anyone else who is interested in statistics) all of these have been in Scotland. I've done some half marathons quite a number of times, and in fact have only done 27 different races, as follows:

Race / number of times run
Glasgow 13
Inverness 13
Alloa 4
Arran 4
Ayr 4
Loch Rannoch 4
Lochaber 4
Falkirk 3
Irvine Valley 3
Stranraer 3
Helensburgh 2
Inverclyde 2
Oban 2
Aviemore 1
Balloch to Clydebank 1
Cowal 1
Dumfries 1
Dundee 1
Edinburgh Forthside 1
Glen Clova 1
Islay 1
Kirkcudbright 1
Loch Leven 1
Lochgilphead 1
Monklands 1
Mull 1
Newcastle 1

My times have been in the following ranges:
Under 1.20 - 4
1.20 to 1.22 - 20
1.23 to 1.24 - 21
1.25 to 1.27 - 14
1.28 to 1.30 - 9
Over 1.30 - 7

I think that is enough statistics for the night. At my current rate and all being well, I should reach 100 in approximately 6 years, which will be 2013 - hopefully just before the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

Is Newcastle in Scotland?

That makes me feel good on two scores... I've done way more overseas half marathons than you... started 3 and finished 2 (which is my luck this year) and I've done Girvan which seems a bit odd to be missing from your list although usual proximity to Inverness I guess is a mitigating factor.

Hope you are well.

Just a note to say thanks for the best wishes and that I did the paddy Buckley Round in 21 hrs 30 minutes, totally different experience to the WHW, I was on a high for almost the whole route and felt strong.

Report on the Blog, will finish it later as I'm just off for a quick 9 holes of golf before the Man U game.
