Camaraderie Rules ;o)
Seriously tired but elated by my 4.38 in my first ever marathon.
Unbelievable experience added to by the risk of being run over most the way around and the strange non appearance of the gels/energy bars. Would I do it again? Probably not, remember it for the fabulous day it was. Well done to all
Well done to everyone. Mrs C & I were both late withdrawals due to injuries but came down for the weekend anyway as we'd already paid a deposit on the B&B.
We stood in the wind and rain in the middle of nowhere between Bedgelert & Rhyd Du. Gave everyone of you a cheer. It was tough going stood in those conditions so running for several hours in it was an awesome achievement. Well done!
Ache here to!!
Here are my splits:
8:39 8:57 9:23 9:55 9:01 6:34 7:05 7:41 8:01 7:49 8:11 8:04 8:04 9:39 10:05 8:16 7:33 8:18 8:49 8:50 8:48 9:21 13:02 11:43 9:14 7:33 1:37
Some great times everyone - well done!
I really enjoyed the day. Set off a bit slower than last year with the intention of doing sub-4 due to the lack of training (only 2x16 and a 19 in training) due to injury. and also to avoid getting to Beddgelert knackered like last year! Really struggled from 18 miles to Waunfawr then seemed to recover a bit and seemed to gain places uphill and then had a really strong downhill to finish in 3:46:34, pretty much the same as last year. Will be back next year, hopefully better trained and injury-free to have a crack at that 3:30.
Absolutely loved it. Course PB by over 50 minutes.
3:59 'gun' 3:58 'chip' - great day at the office.
Hope to be back next year.
Well done everyone - looking forward to watching you all on the telly later.
