Bloody hell that was hard!
It was soooo hot, also a different route to usual so I had no idea how to pace myself! Not sure I can technically count it as I did have to stop and walk at 27 mins for a bit to get my breath back. Stopped again as I got onto the pier because the finish line was further away than I had anticipated which was a psychological blow! A teenage girl ran alongside me and said come on you're nearly there - I somehow found the energy to run across the line
I was aiming sub 30mins and I think I just missed it - the guys coming in just behind me had timed themselves at 30:17. Will update my time when I receive it. ETA just got my time 30 mins exactly!!! Pretty chuffed about that
As anticipated it was much, much harder to run the whole thing (I have previously walked the first 5 mins) but still good fun.
Well Done to everyone running today especially those of you taking part in Parkrun x
