Oh go on then......
3:06:45 for me - absolutely stunned and wasn't expecting that at all. First marathon for me and I'm getting on a bit too. Was hoping for 3:15 as an optimistic finish and thought I had gone off way too fast but mananged to hang on and actually managed a negative split. The crowds were great and I really enjoyed the day and totally chuffed to bits with 114th place!
Haven't read any posts yet, but will do soon.
Marathons are very hard aren't they. Locked into 3.45 pace until mile 18 and then oh my word. Finished in 3:58:57 and nearly sobbed over the line. Feel fantastic now. Apart from painful achy bum muscles.
Thank you very much to karen ives for pacing me.
Thank you everyone for your support and humour. Its carried me through.
That really is it for me and marathons.
I'll post later once I have caught up
