I agree with you S S They all did very well Standingstill in all that rain for all that time!!! A BiG thankyou from me also!!
I had a great run only hope I feel the same at F.L.M Yahoo taper time!,
p.s I didn't pray to the rain gods
Very pleased with that. 21 at faster than my target marathon time. I real surprise. Maybe I should reasses.
My teeth were chattering at the beginning but once I got going, the weather was fine (apart from the headwind on the last 3 miles that made it a little tougher).
Its such a killer to have a choice to end it at mile 15 or go round again. Miles 15 to 17 were really tough metally. Then just counted down until that bloody hill that seemed a lot bigger on the second loop. And the distance between the 21 mile marker and the end seemed about a mile long.
Thanks to all organisers. The marshalls were the happiest marshalls I've seen. The posh lady at the final drinks station made me giggle. She was extremely cheerful give how wet she was. Thanks.
Can you believe I heard some one say in the Band room.... "I thought there would of been a goody bag at the end!!!"
What more could you ask for drinks and a medal at the end all for £7
Please some people!!
Great race yesterday - i can only echo all the positive comments made about the Marshals I thought they did a fantastic job - and somehow managed to stay cheerful through it all.
I thought the Jelly babies were a great touch - a much needed tonic.
I'm trying to find the results online - could anyone point me in the right direction.
Many thanks to all involved
This is the web site but they don't appear to be up yet:
Congratulations on completing the race in the wet conditions, nice to see so many of you give me a smile as you ran past !

All the best
Yes I remember the posh marshal - she was so enthusiastic I felt I had to raise my pace in response. She even said we (my daughter and I) were looking good. If anyone knows her address I send her a pair of my old specs. - we certainly didn't feel it.
I agree with everyone who said this was a really well organised event ..... my only plea is when oh when will we get enough loos? I'd be happy to pay a couple of quid extra on the race price if that meant (more) porta-loos and less anxiety at the start. How many races start with people still queuing???
Overall, thanks to everyone involved in this year's event, runners and marshals alike. Great.
