Nice to hear all your stories. It was a great event.
I'm absolutely gutted. I didn't finish - I made it to the '1km' to go' point at 3:11 (on for a PB) but don't remember too much after that. I woke up in the first aid tent and spent a couple of hours on a drip rehydrating. So no medal for me, and no sense of achievement either.
Curiously my chip finished in 3:25, so I still seem to have an official time!
Halo, I might see you at the airport as I am on the same flight. Try to wear shorts so i can recognise your legs!
Lets hope the strike fizzles out, I am getting pretty nervous now. I completed my last run this morning - a mile to work, but I feel the need to use up this excess energy caused by the recent tapering. The week before a marathon is harder then the 50 mile weeks.
