So happy to have completed this today. I knew I wouldn’t be able to run it all but I took short walking breaks every 10 mins or so and came in at 1.15 which is good for me.
The worst part was waiting to go through the gate. I had no idea that it would take so long to get through. I was near the back, so spent a long time waiting and getting more nervous. Once it started tho I felt better. I will definitely bear this in mind for next time. The seasoned pros seemed to turn up later.
It was hot but running through the city (the middle part) was a bit cooler as there was a breeze which helped. Sir Mo finished before me (funny old thing).
The crowd were amazing, it really did help as I was beginning to flag at 7.5k
I’m feeling v contented now having just eaten greasy pizza. I may do another - not this week tho! 😊😊
