Time: 3:26

What was the best moment (excluding the finish)? The forum cheer; Having a chat with my family at mile 21 and the crowds in general

And the worst moment? Being barged off the road at mile 9 by the RW sub 7:30 pacers (and I was doing sub 7:30)

The biggest surprise? hitting my target after I thought that it had all gone completely out of the window

The most memorable moment? running through Canary Wharf the noise was immense , oh and the guy dressed as a tree with only a thong on!!

What was your goal? sub 3:30

And what was your finishing time? 3:26:04

What would you do differently? start out slower!

And indeed what was the key to your success? shear dogged determination

How will you be celebrating? sleeping!!! "
