Bob Wells 1.27.28 9th, 1st V3

"WELLS Robert dit BOB Bedford Harrieres" was pleased with his 1:27:28 Half Marathon in La Vallée de la Gimone event.  This was good enough for 1st in the V3 category, a couple of minutes faster than the first V2, and 9th place overall out of the 75 finishers

I chose this small event in the rural Gers department because Margaret was having a holiday in Toulouse and there was also a group walk organised in conjunction with the race which she enjoyed. The event flyers promised wine and foie-gras for all participants at the finish and did not disappoint. We followed this with a large Gascon meal with other runners, walkers and officials.  No further explanation of why I am enjoying running in south west France was required. Recovery from the gastronomy will probably take longer than recovery from the physical exercise
