Asics Target 26.2 - Previously lardy girl goes for a Boston Qualifier
Well done Sarah
Very well done Sarah. Great result and you must be thrilled. Well done to Steve MC too! Enjoy.
Wooooooooo!!!! Brilliant!!!!!! Fantastic time - well done you! You must be bouncing.. I am!! A well deserved result after all the hours of training you have put in - and of course that famous bloody mindedness has played a part too. Looking forward to hearing ALL about it!
I met you in the start pen yesterday. Huge congrats! You must be thrilled!
I sneaked in at 3:59:42 which is exactly what I wanted - a sub 4 given the problems with my back.
Fabulous day and great to meet you
What a fantastic result! Can't wait to read the full story...
I had a feeling that you would come in some way faster than 3.30 - you are so fast! Brilliant, inspirational stuff.
Crikey! That's ripping up the streets of Paris! Great effort Sarah. Well done!
Many congratualtions Sarah - nice to meet and chat to you after the finish in the Avenue Foche. Great effort on reaching your target!
Had a fantastic weekend! Thank you for your good luck wishes – they worked!! )
I promise I will pop the race report up as soon as possible!! It was an eventful and amazing weekend and I’ve totally fallen in love with Paris!
p.s. STILL on Cloud 9 !!
Thank you!! You were right! Weather was absolutely fantastic in Paris on Sunday ... couldn’t believe that 2 weeks previously we’d had snow in England! Was practically BBQ weather!!
We celebrated afterwards but I was definitely flagging ... could quite happily have fallen asleep in my chair! I sound like a right old dear now! Good luck for London!! How has the training gone?
Thank you!! I was SO well behaved – running around looking for potatoes and avoiding wheat like the plague! Was also munching on popcorn over the weekend!!
I took a picture for you of the jacket potato I had in a cafe (on the Friday before)... it was the size of my HEAD!! Think I must have looked hungry ...!!
Afternoon Sarah O!
Yes – the Eurostar was so easy!! Also was a couple of hours enforced relaxation ... perfect for when you’re tapering ... or exhausted from running a marathon and celebrating unil late (um ... kind of late) the night before!!
Woo hoo!! Bring on Boston!! What did you decide with your 8 – 10 miles? Did you change it in the end?
Yes – I’m recovering well thanks! Crossed the finish line and slowed down and my arse started seizing up but thankfully all recovered now and everything felt fine Monday, but then DOMS has struck in my calves so it seems like I won’t get off as lightly as I thought I might after all!
Afternoon Marathon Coach Steve!
Thanks for updating the time for me!! I think I was far too excited for my fingers to have worked the keys on my phone. I probably would have written down 8:35 by mistake or something and disappointed everyone!
Thank you!! I am so, so pleased with the time ... but definitely NOT saving any crème eggs for you!! Mine, all mine!! The ones I took with me were gone in fairly quick succession!!
Have to say, I didn’t expect to be 10 mins under target ... maybe 5 but not 10!!!
Thank you!! I’ve been looking at the Boston website this morning ... and set up a reminder in my calendar to submit entry! (Does a happy dance)
I’m really pleased with the time – I knew that all going well I should be able to sneak in at around 3:30, but didn’t expect to do as well as I did or to feel quite as comfortable as I did ... although the last mile wasn’t a lot of fun!! (Maybe because I was visualising all the crème eggs lined up waiting for me!!)
How’s the Halstead training going?
