My 2004 London Marathon

How was it for you? - Quotes and pictures from London 04

Time: 4:50

The best moment for me was seeing my husband at mile 17 brandishing a banana towards me!  ... Closely followed (of course) by reaching the mile 18 cheering point and being presented with a bag of jelly babies.

The worst moments were miles 21 where I really started to run out of steam and had to stop to stretch my left quad and miles 25 which I am convinced was much longer than a mile.  I was beginning to think they had forgeotten to put up the last mile markers...  

My goal time was 4:35 so I was a little slower than hoped for, finishing in 4:50 but that's still a PB by 13 mins so I was chuffed with that.  Also very pleased to beat Mr Tickle and Great Uncle Bulgaria!
