Top results from virtually everyone here. Commiserations to those that didn't quite get what they were after.
Particularly chuffed for lev and ls21 after all you guys have been through with affected build up/last minute disasters!
couldn't make the red lion unfortunately as had an early train back north but great to catch up with a few of you before the race. Next year I am not going to make the same early train mistake and instead stay down an extra night and get on the beers! I didn't even use my voucher ffs.
Hi guys, just dropping in. Well done all. It's fun this marathon stuff int it?
2:22:17 for me and 11th Brit, 29th overall. Not sure on the improvements Lorenzo, other than lots of hard work, an understanding family, a bit of talent and understanding the marathon quite well! I will go quicker though, of that I'm sure. My engine is a sub 2:18 engine but my legs aren't up to that yet, so speed is my next focus.
Hoping you all had fun and thanks for the cheers Minni & Speedy.
Phil I went for a 10 which is the same as my adios and they probably are a touch shorter. Width wise seems similar which means for me they fit better than the adios. I always had to go up to a 10 because Adidas were so narrow but at the expense of my toes not going quite to the end of the toe box. with this Boston boost I now seem to have the perfect shoe! It's only taken 8 years to find it!
Funny you should mention the Boston boosts Phil. I've just acquired a pair and been for my first run in them just this lunchtime. Absolutely loved them. They will be my marathon shoe as much more suited to heel strikers like myself than the adios. I like the adios but do find the upper quite hard and they don't have as much bounce as the Bostons. Will probably use the adios for halfs though.
lots of good training going on here. I'll be at London this year so hopefully bump into a few of you.
