4th GNR for me and OH - course best by all of 16 seconds at 2.15.45 - but from mile 6 it felt like hell on earth for some reason, even with the wind behind me and in the rain, which I love. Haven't seen the photos yet but I can't imagine they'll be very flattering and I hope they haven't caught the scowl I had on when the nice BUPA man was encouraging us all to 'do a Mobot' when all I wanted to do was die...
XLMan - I remember reading your advice after last year's and wish I'd remembered it on Sunday - it's perfect!
I spent 6 miles loving every second, 7 miles feeling like death and *hating* my OH who kept shouting at me to keep up (he's mega fit and just keeps me company when he could easily get a sub 1.45), 0.1 mile in the red mist that passes for sprinting in my head and since then on cloud 9 - already booked next year's hotel!
Well done everybody, PB or not!
