Really enjoyed the race despite (because of?) difficulty of course. Organisation was great as was the atmosphere. Enjoyed the announcer’s impression on Norman Collier at start but would have liked a full lap of track at end to finish.
This was only my second race - I took up running last year after "retiring" from football as getting too old (42) and too many injuries, wish I'd done it sooner. As a novice, I was looking at the mile markers to pace myself and agree with others who queried the accuracy – I gave up trying to use the mile markers fairly early. Nevertheless finished in 1hour 5mins 24secs which is a pb as my only other race was the Wilmslow half marathon (I found Wilmslow easier than this).
This leads me to the question, was the race really 10 miles?
