Lee - You've just come out of a hard few weeks mentally. Give yourself a break - take it easy and do whatever you need to (run/cycle etc). I agree - it does sound like you''re on the cusp of something... i hope its just post marathon hysteria
If you need anything or need support - you know where I am
Stewart/Cleanshoes/ruffles - the same goes for you all.
Meldy - it's been a pleasure. Same again next year?
Yeah go on Emmy you know you want to do Amsterdam again go girl go Any tips on good hotels etc Eggy/Emmy would be very welcome need to find the Amsterdam thread too... Mr NGUG who normally moans re the cost of travelling to marathons was over the moon ... I might have been a bit difficult to live with over the last few months
What are you looking for? I can come up with some suggestions and different price ranges
Thanks Matty - and congratulations on the engagement and time!!
I will admit to being a tiny bit disappointment that it wasn't sub 4, but it only lasted a fraction of a second as I really couldn't have run it any faster and it just meant I would've had to get sub4 next time!!! Having just crossed the line though I was more worried about throwing up on a marshal than anything else (I may have pushed a little too hard at the end!). Emmy fixed me with a beer though!
You're making me sound like a drink pusher Didnt you get a sub 4 in your "real" time? I know that my time was added on a few seconds but I thought you made the sub 4 barrier?
There's always another marathon to try at
I'm not sure what's going on with the forum today... lots of posts coming up twice and some not at all :/
I do love the feeling that I've got from running a marathon though, it's such a massive achievement, I want to tell everyone I come across that I've just done one and that I survived, but I'm not sure that it's socially acceptable to bore strangers to death with that sort of thing
Whenever I get complacent about running marathons - I remember something on Shades thread about being 1% of the population.
You should bore people with it because it's an amazing achievement. Do you know how many people have posted on here because of london and saying: one day I want to run a marathon. You seized that one day - you've done it and youve done something epic! Celebrate that!
