It was a couple of weeks ago now that I ran the Cambridge Half and with all the events that have since been cancelled I feel very lucky to have been able to do it.
Cambridge was only my second half marathon and I knew it wasn’t going to be a PB so I set out to run a negative split, which I managed! Very pleased with that as in the few races I’ve done I’ve always set off too quickly.
It was a lovely day for it, especially considering the storms we’d had every weekend leading up to it! Sunny but not too hot and a bit of a breeze.
The route went round some of the colleges and then out to Grantchester, where the TV show of the same name is filmed. A great mix of town and country.
The support from the crowd was amazing with some even making an effort to shout out names from race numbers.
Overall a fab race.
