I'll be going for my nickname on my vest rather than real name, I think it'll help my family know I'm about to pass them.
It's my first time at London and therefore my supporters first time too. Can anybody offer some good advice I can pass on to them? Which tubes to get to see me maybe 2 or 3 times?
If you're going to lube up get some body glide rather than vaseline, I absolutely swear by it. From horrendous blisters in my first 2 years running I've been blister free since I started using it about 18 months ago.
I loved it as usual. 1.38 for me which is 3 minutes quicker than last year so very pleased with that.
I really wanted to run up Milton Road for the first time but I made use of the water station half way so ended up walking to take a drink.
I found myself in the unusual situation of running completely on my own for about half a mile, big gap in front of me and behind. It was a well supported spot as well so people were clapping and cheering just for me. That was quite special
