Boston Scientific Clonmel Half Marathon

First race since Portumna in June and happy with outcome, aimed to beat my Wexford half PB of 1hour 42min and 7sec which I set back at the end of April.

All going very well with a 4:43min/km avg pace up until around mile 10 but then the wheels started to come off abit and I couldn't keep the pace going any longer. 

Found the hills very hard going throughout, by mile three it seemed I was sweating buckets but things improved then as there was a nice bit of downhills, coming back into Clonmel and getting back onto the outer ringround though was hard with the hills though. (I need more hill work!)

Eventually avg pace increase to 4:47min/km by the time I crossed the finish line in a Garmin time of 1:41:08. (Official Time 1:41:06)

All important garmin log of the race
