Just by way of update I did it and finished! I was a bit shocked at my time 01:03:14 - I have never ran that fast before!! So for a first go I was really happy with my time and felt great - absolutely loved it and looking forward to doing more in the future. Only thing is I slipped and fell on the path by the river at the half way mark and had to stop so lost at least a minute there if not more - I carried on though with nasty cut on leg with blood running down it even though I felt like crying!! I have definitely got the running bug and have now signed up for half marathon in July next year - again no way I could do that at the moment but I've got plenty of time to train!
Thanks for all your advice and support here
