Started raining just as everyone lined up to start the run and then got heavier over the next 20 mins or so, only stopping just before I finished.
I also managed to drop and break my glasses just after the 3k mark, had taken them off cos they were getting steamed up.
So I lost about 2 mins looking for the arm that had come off, then couldn’t quite motivate myself to keep running further on round the course.
Still, not too terrible a time, would have probably been around 32 mins again without the pause while hunting for broken glasses.
I’m now investigating getting some contact lenses to wear when I go running, instead of wearing my glasses.
