When I say "it seemed like a good idea", it certainly didn't feel that way on the Sunday morning! Numbers had to be collected on the day, and so I picked mine up early and then headed out to run a few miles (though I did find it rather difficult to do so, as there were so many people that I hadn't seen for ages that I wanted to chat to). I tried to time it so that when I made it back for the start, I could just rid myself of my tshirt (in order to race in club colours), chat to a couple of friends and get on with the run.
|Warmer and sunnier than forecast!!|
Putting the race in the middle of my run definitely worked out for the best, as it meant that I managed to run a sustained effort over the HM, with on-course support (though I did realise later that I hadn't taken a drink at all), yet I also got my long run done, supported the club race, and got to catch up with many friends afterwards!
