What an outstanding day! As a first-time marathon runner, this was a perfect day. Too many high points to mention during the race, but the standout moments were making my way back to the hotel afterwards - so many people congratulating me on the tube as I sat there in shorts, vest and medal. One woman even asked to take my picture! Sadly no autograph requests!
Many thanks to RW for their sub 3hr plan - 2hrs 56 mins - job done!
