The next day the DOMS hit me hard and I knew I had run a hard race. We also had booked an all day walking/driving tour to explore Sintra so it was the perfect opportunity to walk off the lactic acid. The DOMS had all but disappeared by the time we hit up Barcelona a couple of days later.
Would I run this race again?
No, the rock n roll part of the race consisted of several amateur bands along the course and definitely no finish line concert as promoted. The half marathon start time should be earlier than 10.30am when there is cooler conditions.
But the bling is pretty ACE!
