A huge congrats Mel that is an amazing time. I hope you are now basking in the sunshine. I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed Paris experience and that was really my key worry as I have often doubted my ability in shorter runs. I dug deep when I started getting blisters at 15 miles and when the quads were aching but I just told myself its going to be tough so keep working. The crowds got me through it but I also have to say thinking of your story and I made it.. In under my real target of 5 hours....4.51 and am so happy that it was such a great experience.  Enjoy the rest and thank you for sharing your running story over the past few months. S x

Hi Mel,

Have yourself a great holiday! I will say it once again but you really are an exceptional person. Well done on reaching your goal, you set out to achieve a goal at the most difficult time of your life and not only did you achieve it, you did it with such grace.

Best of luck and I will think of you and your girls often.

I dragged myself away from the sun for half an hour to touch base!!!!.... All your kind words have left me a little tearful in the hotel lobby!!!.... I guess I have the time now to reflect on the last 6 months and how it could have gone..... I guess its just hit me how much Runners world really took a gamble on me , as I was such an "unknown"....... Thank goodness I didn't let then down!!!!.....

Yes Sam most certainly I will keep in touch..... It would be an absolute pleasure!!!!....Let me know of any races near you that you are doing..... I would love to join you and your running group......!!
Have to confess I have been out in the mornings since thursday just for a 2 mile jog.....couldn't quite leave it a whole week..... But taking it really gentle!!!!...
