Hi guys, what a great day. I was aiming for sub 3:30 and came in at 3:29:03 so I over the moon with that for my first marathon.

Chris - I parked next to you, I remember seeing your top and fancying a pint!!!

Really liked the medal, great crowd support and I was surprised that when I applauded the winner when he passed me at about mile 20 when I was at 13 that he greeted me with a thumbs up. I sometimes find some of the faster athletes snobby but I thought that summed up the camaraderie on the day.

Apart from the great medal I didn't think much of the goody bag - some basics apple juice and crisps and a fake mars bar from aldi!

Great event though, really enjoyed it!!

Malcs - no , this one was #98.  #99 will be this Sunday at Stratford-on-Avon.  I'm afraid my racing and training schedules are not text book.  I mainly do ultras (and very little training ...)

I'm impressed with all these fast debut times.  It's normally considered you're getting somewhere near your potential on your sixth marathon.  Up to this there are big improvements and afterwards you're just knocking minutes off.

Yesterday at 23:40

Btw are the results up anywhere?  Race website seems out of date.
