For me, held with the 3:59 pacers to Cutty Sark, started to suffer heatstroke symptoms and my race basically fell apart, as I had to drop to a slower pace and run:walk lots of it to finish. Ended up 55 minutes slower than I’d hoped, with a tardy 4:49 (although I managed a sprint finish, yay!). Incredible crowds helped me finish, but as a pale-blue-skinned Scot with little experience of that sun thing, I suffered really badly. Guess I’m not a hot weather runner.
But less of me, how was it for you, darlings?
Big shout out to Emily, the 3:59 pacer. I tried to stay close, I really did. I hope those that stayed with you got their goal time. It was brutally hot!!!
