I do like it when a plan comes together.

This time last year I was approached via the Forums by a young lady wishing to run The Flora London Marathon, having just watched friends taking part and being overcome with insanity by the whole occasion.

Today after over 11 months hard work, injuries, highs and lows and the rest of the rollercoaster of occurences that follow those involved in marathon training round she completed the run 5 minutes inside her target time of 4.30.

She ran the whole way from the start in Greenwich park to the Gantry in the Mall, I was so proud of her.

Was she emotional, of course she was, so emotional even smelly old me got a hug. Me ....... I enjoyed every minute of it, what date is next year's?
