Absolutely loved this event! Got myself an HM pb as well so am really happy (1:57).
This is the fourth HM I have ever done and my fourth this year (only started running last year) and also the smallest event. It has to be my favourite. Great value for money, marshalls were excellent and loved the route. Great water stations too.
I can't stomach much first thing in the morning so normally just have a banana and then go out and run about an hour later. I always do my long runs early in the morning but don't get up until about an hour before I leave the house, so that's why I was wondering what to do on race day as it will be three hours with no food if I leave the house at around 6.15.
MIght just stick with the porridge then. I don't want to end up feeling sick while running.
