Running race 1:12:58  11.63 km (6:16 / km) +495m 5:10 / km
Fantastic (okay maybe I didn't think so at the time!), but pretty chuffed to have got round in one piece in a fairly respectable time.
The climb straight from the start was awful, had a bit of a panic about 500m in that I would have to walk the whole way and embarrass myself :P
Then I got overtaken by quite a few people on the early descents - 4 knee injuries from falling in the last year has put a stop to any confidence there.
We then went up the big climb from 3km - 4km where I overtook them all again with a pretty rapid powerwalk! Kudos to anyone who ran that.
Loved the next 5km, picked up the pace and felt like I was racing again rather than just hanging on.
Started dying on the last ascent though, but still overtook quite a few men and managed to hold them off to the finish.
Definitely want to try more races like this & get better at the dreaded hills.
Only FU23 so won by default - YASSS! ;-)
