Had a bit of a nightmare and first ever DNF. Had thigh / hamstring issue from the start but tried to ignore it and hoped it would ease. Went off a PB pace and seen Seren twice on the first out and back.
Passed T-Rex around 3-4 miles - I was going to say hello but you were in conversation with another runner and didn't want to interrupt. I started struggling more with the issue from around mile 7 and encouraged my club mates to press on. I think T-Rex overtook me around mile 9 just after the bridge and I was slowing so you probably seen me quite a bit behind on the way back. Ducked out after one lap and after explaining the issue they still let me collect a Half Marathon medal and goodie bag so thank goodness there was a half marathon option.
Went for massage afterwards which confirmed issues with hamstring / quads. Appointment booked with my usual sports massage therapist on Wednesday.
Enjoyed supporting everyone else and stayed until our last club runner was in just after the 4:30 mark.
