Shaun on his way to a 17:40.
The course was awesome - I loved the hill. And coming through town on each of the 3-loops there were tons of people lining the barriers cheering. A big NYE party in the middle of a race. It was great.
Apparently you don't lose fitness as fast as you think. I ran 19:07 - not close to my PR, but I had absolutely no expectations and it was a lot of fun. I also got a mention in an article on CNN as the girl from San Diego who came all the way to Nos Galan to race a New Year's 5k. Funny.
