I would like to point out in a slightly bitter way that my first few mile splits were spot on at around 9:12 ish. Much good it did me! =)
FYC - Great time. Pity you missed the GFA by 5 sec.
Martin - Cracking time. 3:45 is my long term goal but got to work on my speed a bit to get back to where i was a few years ago.
Khanivore/Will - So close to the 4h mark. Next time hopefully you will get a time beginning with a 3. Just need to rest for a week or two and then get back to your running. Enjoyed Chester when i did it in 2011 and still thinking of doing it later in the year (Money and wife dependant).
Wabo - Good running and the splits looked good.
Managed 2h40m (16.5 miles) on Sunday before watching London when i got back. Suffering a bit towards the end of the run but was expecting to (Out for wifes birthday and got in late + up early and straight out for run with no breakfast).
I was not planning to take 4-6 weeks off to be honest. I am walking around fine - i obviously didn't work hard enough on the day
4 19 .16 VLM 6th in Category. What an emotional day. I was expecting 4.45 this year based on my training. Very emotional day and the easiest marathon for me ever.I never know how it will be until I start running 8 london marathons all done within 20 minutes if you know what I mean. Will I ever break 4 hours?

Wow LO65. You are amazing. What an inspiration. So so well done.
Thank you so much. We all did our best!
To many amazing times to post but as you say LO65 we all did out bit it was a special day.
I have decided NOT to enter the ballot, I may do a spring marathon next year but if I do think it will be Edinburgh, my wife has always wanted to go plus I have no idea how I will feel after my Feb challenge.
Autumn marathon. Anyone thinking of one see Chester been mentioned. The other side of the country mablethorpe is fast and flat so may do it
I am doing Chester! Windermere next month though.
I followed your advice Susan, I run 11 minte miles on long runs and never do more than 30 miles in training. I start off a marathon slowly and never get out of my comfort zone. Only manage just under an hour for 10k these days! Hence my absence from this forum!
I would love sub 4 hours!! HOW
