Siony ...that's the part I remember think I started blubbering at that point as well, and when it said only 2 more miles gulp...... getting excited for next year now. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE !! YOU WILL ALL BE BRILLIANT
Wow, memories of last year have prompted me to return to say hello, good luck to anyone running & I'll be watching with a slight envy as I would love to be running it again.
Currently trying to decide between Jersey & Chester for October for my second marathon (I knocked 25 minutes of my 1/2 PB in Feb & would be hoping for sub 4 hr marathon!).
Anyway, back to the point I hope everything goes well tomorrow & running is in the news for amazing fund raising efforts & fantastic stories of personal achievements ... and most of all runners and supporters have a great day!
Where is everyone come on we want to know how you got on...... we are all waiting !!
Rakhee, can understand why you mightr feel disapppointed but give yourself the credit for carrying on when you were in pain - and you'll be able to knock so much off your PB if you decide to run again. Rest easy
well done rakhee, you certainly won the mental battle by not quitting and getting through that in so much dis-comfort, massive credit and you,ve got the medal,ENJOY IT because you earned it.
well i loved it, i completed in 4.35.29 which im delighted about. had hoped for sub 4h30 but to be within 5-6 mins of it is great and think my training went 99% to plan!
ran the perfect race until mile 21 but by that time the sun and warmth was just draining me and as you know we,ve trained in rubbish weather for the last 5 months i slowed down too much and it became a mental battle for the last few miles but i knew i was always going to finish it.
afterwards went back to the charity after party and had a well earned massage and some food and drinks. legs not too bad today, maybe tomorrow will be worse!
ballot opens on monday and yes my name will be in there!
Big eater yeah !!! well done brilliant time. If you get in next year we can virtual train together. Must admit it did look a bit warm. Just waiting to hear from Kiwi now. Kiwi where are you ? Rakhee are you ok ?
for some reason I am not being notified when people post on here anyone else having the same problem ?
yeah well done Siony for entering again are we slightly mad or what ?
Hi all and well done. Sorry to hear about your knee RAKHEE, but as it was said before. You have done the London marathon so well done you. You are now in the elite club of being amongst the 1% of pepole who have ever run a marathon. Congrats. Also to you BIGEATER. the average time is 4.37 so you are below that great stuff. Pip and everyone else , entries open Monday. Go for it and we can do it all agin !! lets keep this thread up and running for another year !! I'm up fot it.
Kiwi sooo glad now that I deferred till next year. Really excited about it. And you will have me pestering and quizzing you all over again ...yeahhhh !!
how did you get on pretty whizzy I expect
Rakhee are you ok ??
Big eater you will be in trouble with Kiwi even if you go for a short run. You should rest and let your body recover. We were all banned from running last year for about 4 weeks !!!
Hi I'm ok, really gutted about my time however went back to work yesterday and my students all gave me a round of appluase and wanted to see my medal. It was the look on their face and how proud they were of me that made me realise that I did achieve something people can only ever dream of.
I'm going to let myself fully recover but I think I need to try and get a place next year to prove to myself that I can do it in under 5 hours until then I'm going to start my triathlon training.
Thank you all for your supoort throughout my training, without you guys I wouldn't have made the start line let alone the finish!
Well done BigEater, that is fantastic news.
