I did it in 1hr 40m 21!!
I really enjoyed it - was a bit strange "finding" my pace for the race as I am used to doing the shorter runs so I had to hold myself back and get into a comfortable stride.
The 2 main climbs were tough but I got through them and actually picked up for the last mile.
As always, runners have the "I would of gone faster if,,,,," thoughts! It would of been great if we had chips for our times because I didnt get to the start line for at least 10-20 seconds after the whistle went and it was very congested on the 2 laps of the track when we started so I felt I was stuck behind alot of people which possibly affected my time!
BUT I have to say all of the Marshalls were absolutely brilliant - offering encouragement and smiles to everyone. Their presence allowed me to just think about running and not worring about anything else!
