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

Time not given

I thought that I was well prepared for everything that the FLM could throw at me. I had energy gels, immodium, blister plasters and ibuprofen.

What I didn't anticipate was the huge lump in my throat in the last mile which almost stopped me breathing. I thought that I was going to have to pull out on Saturday. I thought that I was going to drop out at six miles.

The fantastic support, the jelly beans and the cheers willed me round in a sub-4 hour time and a new PB.

Thank you to everyone.
