I enjoyed the course, I love Media City anyway but the weather held and the views are amazing!! I thought it felt less busy than in the previous month but there wasn't a Man Utd game this time so that's prob why! It's a tough course, psychologically hard to do 4 loops and up and down the bridges but I did enjoy it and this time I travelled with a friend and met some of her running buddies, so it felt like a very social occasion xx
