Well done LMB - good determination. You'll recover and get back to better times. Keep at it.
I had a short hill walk today and felt OK - beautiful evening. Won't run till mid next week. Now waiting for an overnight flight with glass of wine in hand.
Cbo - did Amsterdam last year (and 55 minutes faster than this year's Edinburgh!). Well organised and flat (though I heard several people complaining of the "hills" - bridges over canals! Doesn't really take in the sights of Amsterdam though and similar to Edinburgh quite industrial in parts. Stadium start and finish is great. No relays and half marathon starts after the full finishes!
Cbo - wow - famous. In with the elites. It is great to see the elites heading the other direction (many miles ahead).
Great to see so many people going for their next marathon. Assuming I can recover, after WHW I've the Speyside way in August, then in Autumn I've Amsterdam and San Antonio marathons (both based on travel with work). I would really like to get an entry to Boston next year....
Good attitude E'emma - enter a race and be positive. Sorry that your are struggling with your foot though. I've wondered about doing the Wall. Sounds like a great route. This will (hopefully??) be third WHW for me. Wonderful race, full of nutters, amazing support teams, great scenery and a much covetted crystal goblet!
Running can be a struggle, but not running is misery!
Well done Miggito on the 3:58. Great effort.
Speaking of farm smells; there was one point on the marathon, going past some houses (Prestonpans?) that someone was cooking bacon. I was nearly sick!
Well done to all of you posting PBs - some by very large margins! Also well done to those running their first marathon.
The Wall should be a great event E'Emma. I hope that you recover soon for it. A few days complete rest should allow you to see how it feels - don't give up. My race is the West Highland Way. Went to physio today and he was reasonably upbeat. Will hold off decision for 2 weeks but don't really think it is going to work.
The organisation does seem to get better each year.
I wonder if it was me going slowly but I seemed to see a lot of people collapsing or collapsed at various stages!
