Well, he did it, putting in an official clocked time of 2hours 6 mins, Simon completed the Windsor Half around 2400th out of about 4,500 runners. Not bad we say for a 50 year old ! Running with Matt Bartlett from Mitie, enabled two hours of in depth discussion on business strategy, running strategy and wine collections to help pass the time.
The weather was kind and as the boys ran vigorously down the final 1 mile straight with Windsor Castle in the background, they were spurred on by a record crowd cheering and shouting names out( of course ones that could be repeated !).
Roll on next year, no doubt Simon will be aiming to improve on his finish time !
