In short: PB but no medal to show for it!!! In full: My sixth marathon and a PB but no medal to display with my others!! Now I know that most runners have enough medals but doing a marathon especially in those conditions deserves a medal and some one from fat feet to hang it around your neck and say well done!!
The cadets were fantastic, one even ran out from the drink station to hand me a gel. Well done to all of them.
As for the route, its one of the best locations to run and I was lucky to train for my first two marathons along the route.
Just the lack of a medal and support at the end (not even a space blanket when I was shivering so much on the drive home)put more of a dampner on the race than the weather. Date of review: November 6, 2012
