London Marathon – done!

Just a quick post to let you know I completed the London Marathon. I really enjoyed it and got round in 4:02 – just missed the sub 4 but my own fault after I just lost focus with about 3 miles to go and my head went. I walked most of the last two miles but am pleased with the way I ran until that point.

It was a fabulous day, beautiful sunshine with a wonderful silence before the start for those in Boston (you could have heard a pin drop) followed by a rousing applause. The crowd, as ever were fantastic.

I hope all my fellow bloggers and readers fared well too – full report to follow.

    • Thank you Red Hen. I learnt a harsh lesson last year about refuelling last year so this year straight after the race into St James Park for a bit of a picnic and a cup of tea! Then a little walk to stretch the legs and a pint of the good stuff! 🙂

    • Thanks Zoe – I’m liking your style of a mid-race beer – might have helped me in the last few miles!
