Ashman - are you the Marshall who shouted "HeOw ya fat c*nt!" to me? Or was that just me dreaming - it was probably when I was in The Port outside Greggs with me extra large sausage roll and Happy Meal.

Ah Andy yes it was the arrow sign! Genius. Thanks!

Just a suggestion

I had a cadburys Boost at the start I did.

Dave, it was a damn fine suggestion too. However, unfortunately, it wasn't right. I was saying previous (if Acp still gives a shit) that I too shall try then 55 mile P&D schedule and may add more long runs to it. Cos I'm a crazy mofo ya see.

thats the benefit of my geeky side i write most of my messages on the phone and found out you can use the arrows for making bold text. because the tool bar isn`t there on me phone.

This was my first marathon and I was just glad to get round. I had heart failure a few years ago (when I was 22) and I decided this year to do something that really pushed me. It was a rather slow 5 hours 8 mins but from about 21 miles I was having pretty bad cramp. I wanted to get under 5 hrs ideally, but I'm happy at just finishing. On my way round I swore never to do anything like that again, but now the aches are starting to wear off, I find myself looking up what running events are coming up in the future. Crazy.

It was a fantastic event and everyone involved made a tough day that little bit easier. Well done to everyone who ran!

That is fantastic Lammy! You should be very very proud of yourself!!

I felt exactly the same!! At about 23 miles a lady ran past me and I said to her 'Why the f***k would you put yourself through this again!!'

About an hour after finishing I had decided that I wanted to do another one!!

Incase anyone is interested there is Conwy half marathon on the 18th of November? Can't decide yet as on holiday from 26th Oct to 3rd Nov and am intending on drinking lots of alcohol and eating lots of crap.....what do you think? I couldn't bear another disappointing time. Probably best not to........

Lammy I loved your post. Brilliant. My father who suffers heart failure and had a heart attack at 42, my cousin had a heart transplant at 25 so I know how hard heart conditions can be. Well done you and you will have definitely been bitten by the bug!

Ruth, loads of us doing Conwy Half! Go for it, it's a lovely race.

Andy, I feel it in me bones, Manchester will be your marathon.
