As my first ever half marathon I enjoyed the run this morning. There were plenty of marshals and water stops. I could print my chip timing result at the end which was a bonus. I think off road running will take some time for me to get used to but the course wasn't too bad. A bit boggy in places but on the whole nothing more than gently undulating, nothing I would call a hill at all. Beautiful countryside and lovely woods to run through made it much prettier than my usual road running. A lovely welcome at the finish line, and a decent medal (it's all about the medal!). Not a lot of runners though, I think many were deterred by the sponsorship pledge but hopefully Iain Rennie will take the feedback on board and think about it for next year. Only thing I would have liked would have been some mile markers, there weren't any at all. I believe it's the first one they have done so my novice point of view is well done Iain Rennie.
