This event used to be called the Ramathon. It’s now called the Derby Half Marathon. It’s a big event with lots of support. A latte from Costa, collect number, get to the start area and off I go. Very, very well organised. Impossible to go wrong. Water and sports drinks available quite often. For the first mile it is a little crowded but after a mile it’s fine. I got hotter and hotter the further I ran, I thought to myself “I seem slower and find this a lot harder than I used to”. I plod on thinking of the medal and get to the end. At the end I get a nice medal and running top and walk down the river to meet my husband at the Dave Lloyd Centre to shower and have lunch. Easy.
