We did it!

21st September 2014, what a stunning morning considering the vile day before..

It was a chilly start waiting to kick off at 9am, but as soon as we got through the start line we could feel the warmth of the sun.....

We weaved our way through Edgbaston, down towards the Cricket Ground then through towards Kings Heath, Walkers Heath and Forhill, a few climbs on the way towards Drakes Close and a quick refreshment and comfork break, we had broken the back of it 16 miles in 1 hour 18 mins......

Back to it, and some big climbs......towards Shirley, Yardley Wood, Moseley, and then back towards the Cricket Ground at Edgbaston, and those final climbs.....i was quite glad if the traffic light turned to red to catch my breath back.....final push around the back of Edgbaston and then down towards Broad Street and a big Scream under the 5 Ways Tunnel we had the end in sight......

2hr 12 mins which was well under my 2.30 that I had set my self so well chuffed....turbo trainer now arrived so I can get more training in and build up my Stamina.....now for the next challenge! :)
