Well considering the re routing they had to do and the loops we had to do 3 times, I thought that was great! Hylands park was particularly pretty (sunshine helped), and the crowd support was excellent. Gold stars to the marshals and to whoever thought of handing out bananas and jelly babies. And I did manage a PB 4.56.23, nearly a half hour improvement on my 1st effort. my garmin measured the course at 26.62 miles. A day on my sofa today!
As far as I'm concerned weather on the day is almost perfect (a bit hot) but sooo much better than last time (5 hour monsoon). And as I don't know Chelmsford at all, wherever they route it will be interesting. Looking forward to staggering round any bit of park they fancy!
