We're up and running!
Race Jase, I was blown away with just how much determination you had in the final stages of the marathon. You should feel very proud of third place and I'm sure that a 2.30 marathon will follow very soon.
I am going to save that blog and read it when I'm struggling in training or the night before my next marathon. It is really inspiring to know that the front runners struggle just as much as the ones at the back of the field. You make it look so effortless. Thanks for the blog. It was certainly like reading my own thoughts in places (not the bit about running sub 6m/m).
That was a brilliant read Race Jase.....a fantastic effort and your determination wasincredibly impressive. The blog was a wonderful insight into what it feels like to be at the 'sharp end' of a race whilst most of us are challanging our personal demons much further back.
It was heartening to see that you felt the same emotions coming out of the tunnel...and for me personally, seeing you pass me (by Blundell St on Wapping) defined my race. I remembered you were number 8 and hoping for between 2:20 and 2:30 and then (the leader passed me at 2:31) I seen you in third place I screamed out 'go on Jase' and then thought.....oh shit....this course is tougher than he thought!!!
Thanks for posting and congratulations on your placing!!!
I can only echo the sentiments of those above Jase, brilliant read and it's heartening to read how proud you were for you and your family. My Mum surprised me by saying how proud she was of me and I finished in 5 hrs and 57 seconds!
Good luck with parenthood as well, thats what got me running in the first place (getting away from screaming kids!
Jase did u say you're doing London, oooh RW meet up??? I'm staying with my friend who lives in Cambden Town and will probably go down early Sat to spend the day in London just chilling, so perhaps we could organise a meet up or a meeting place on Blackheath common, cos i know that i wont see you for dust once you start hahahaha not doing your pace
