And I loved it! Was hot already by 9am and I'm used to running at 5.30/6 am so was nervous about the heat. I was right at the back when we started, I knew I needed to start slow because of the heat and to make sure I finished. The start was across a field and then it was two laps through the woods. This was lovely as we had the shade from the trees. Marshals along the way cheering you on was lovely, even a little boy with his mum who said as I passed "mummy that's a slow runner!".....mortified! Walked twice for about 30 seconds each but I made it in a time of 41:28. Less than ten minutes slower than my friend who has done a half marathon in the past! Going again next Saturday!
