Well done to all of you with them fantastic times, This old git was quite pleased and crawled over at 3hrs 58 mins, The start was a sham, but as Jake said the goodie bag made londons look like a cheap (lucky bag) And the beautiful girl who gave me my Brooks top at the expo was really hot, (was worth the flight alone ) Glad the wife stayed at the hotel saturday morning, We have just got home and the little airport at Valencia was very quick compared to the passport clowns at stansted when we just arrived back, By the way i went to the mestalla the atmosphere was great cost me 20 euros to get in, Mind you R.C.D espanyol was robbed and lost 2-1 to Valencia
It's good to read so many happy race reports
James, when you view your result via the email link (presuming you had one?). I was originally looking at the official time thinking 'bah humbug', then saw the 'real time' which is the one that appears on my marathon photos. I have always used the 'real time' not gun or official time from races thinking this was due to the delay in crossing the start line etc?
Previously had a moan about the stranglehold and high costs of marathonphotos.com but on this occasion I will be forking out, simply have to do for this race
Wifey is trying to shoe horn me into doing the Madrid marathon late April next year (think she is trying to kill me orf!) ..loads a hills and will be warmish by then!
Hi to all, just to let you know J,M i might of been on the same flight as you yesterday.
you might of seen me Valencia airport the guy who was not allowed to take his daughters hand luggage through where we had to board the plane, When they put the bag in the ryan air height restrictor, they then said it was to bloody high, and i had to empty the whole case and cram it into my running bag i got from the expo, When we went out their the bag was fine then so ryan air just make up the rules as they go along, I was not going to pay them an exta 50 euros. i made sure i left them the case with my sweaty wet vest, dirt wet smelly socks, and all the other nice things after 4 days away, The girls face was a picture (send that to michael oleary M.D )
All, not sure if you follow the official Valencia marathon on fb, but they posted this link to a short video clip of the musical tunnels, happy times
