Berkhamsted Half Full

The race that nearly
Didn’t happen

Berkhamsted Half Marathon March 2016 by SussexSportPhotography.com

573

Berkhamsted half marathon

For reasons which avoid
10 miles has been the
Longest race
Ran so far

And those
In the many
Years ago

So this half
Intrigued

In part
It’s part of the Serpentine championship series
In part
In all
I just wanted the half
To know

Injury weeks
Food poisoning days
Threatened
But Berkhamsted arrived
With a train full of disco

And d’em ‘ills

A beautiful location
Chill
And sun
Vest
And shorts

Ready

A slow
Steady off
Built

And built

As the miles ticked off
The landscape presented
The legs strengthened
This half
Full

In finish
The clock appeared

Just to get round would have been
But the red neon
95:38

Delighted
