Looking good @GrannyJen! What a fabulous day for it :)
After a weekend of storm Jorge and having the London winter 10k cancelled because of Ciara it was like a miracle happening, suddenly the rain went and the wind died down a bit .... lovely.

First 1/2 in three years, nice to put the crippling pain of Plantar Fasciitis behind me :D Sadly will never run a marathon again, on cardiologist advice, but lovely to be just running again.

Greenwich Church Street. Did you finish in the Old Royal Naval College or Cutty Sark Gardens?
The finish was Cutty Sark itself... but then the finisher funnel snaked tortuously around the Cutty Sark, along the gardens, over to the museum for bling and tee short collection, then around the grounds of the museum for bag collection, then over the steps and into the park for goodie collection, then finally to exit at William 4th gate. It took me almost as long to clear Greenwich as it did to run the race :shocked Quite a lot of critical comments this morning from a lot of participants. It was a long time queuing to get bags and put a warm top on.

Don't wish too hard/

The course was amazing and well organised but the beginning, and the end especially, had me saying "Never again".

Bag drop was 0830 and then kept in start pens, freezing cold, for an hour and 15 minutes for start time on 0945. The finish funnel was a joke a shuffling queue stretching for nearly a mile, probably 40 minutes to collect bags and get a warm top on. Definitely one to miss.
