BTW, a friend of mines dad was cared for by LOROS in his last weeks. This is a very, very worthy charity.
Shades has summed up everything I would have wanted to say about the Leicester Mara Fantasic event Bob, look forward to next year.
Birmingham Owl - Nice comment, I agree.
Rosa - I'm not sure how I managed to keep going, as I have quite a bad problem with my hamstring. Well, the saying goes - where there's no sense, there's no feeling...say no more!
Great event. Rather more undulating than expected, but otherwise everything couldn't have gone more smoothly.
Not sure I'll do the full marathon again, but that has no reflection on the event and everything to do with "so many marathons, so little time". I'd definitely do the half.
And in the end all I wanted was a GFA/BQ time, and I got it
Bob this race was great and I will be back next year.
Great event Bob!I think the marshalls did a great job - the poor person who looked like they were about to be assaulted by a complete N*B of a motorist on the Traffic Island before the first real updulate was brill - I hope someone had that idiot arrested - because it was completely unnecesasary.
I think the touch of having gels available was genuis (especially as High5's are kind to me) - having them 100m or so before the water stations so they can be taken and then washed down would make sense to me.
I always take my own ones just before the water station for this reason - they need diluting!!
Nice medal too!! I'll also not be sending mine back for engraving - keep the money, and make sure LOROS gets as much as it can!
Note to self... must make stride length longer...
Have just seen revised chips times, are these the final results or may there be some more changes. Not happy that my time went from 3hr49mins to 3hr50mins, thats 30secs!!! I've been telling everyone 49, now i'll have to admit to how slow i was!!! Bloody marathons if only they weren't so long!!
