Race Date: Sunday 16th January 2017
Having been down at freezing point in Texas just a few weeks ago, Nancy arrived in Houston to 70+ degrees and 95% humidity. So I think the performance on the day was more a case of just getting round the Half Marathon course safely than giving any thought to running fast.
Conditions were such that after the event Nancy asked
I’m not clear if I’ve just taken part in a half marathon or a swimming event?
The winners had no such problems though with Leonard Korir winning in 1:01:14 and the first women home Veronicah Nyaruai Wanjiru in 1:07:58.
They were obviously a tad more acclimatised to the surroundings than Nancy.
