I'm so chuffed about this, did my first proper race. It was really cold at the start, but we had a big warm up session, and off we went. The worst hill I have ever run (notorious for ice in the winter) and a monsoon of rain (which weirdly I loved) and then slight uphill to the finish line. Personal Best for the time, I must say it is nice to not have to worry about traffic because of the marshalls, and I found having the other runners there spurred me on.
