My 2004 London Marathon

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

Time: 5:04

Terrific Day.

Funniest Moment - My mate Dave shouting "You could win this!" at mile 16 (I finished in 5:04!)

Worst Moment - Losing the 11 min mile pacer at 20 miles

Biggest Surprise - finding out I was being paced by someone who can run a sub-3:15 marathon, my mates will never believe me.

Most memorable moment - helping the handsome Ross (11 min mile pacer) our of his top at 5 miles.......

What would I do differently? I'd stick to the 11 min mile pacer like glue and not stop to walk through the water station at 20 miles. So if Ross is game to go through this again next year, I'll be only too glad to help him out of his top.

PS. My boyfriend's comment regarding the undressing incident? "So let me get this straight; you ran a 5hr marathon and STILL had time to undress a Marine?"
