After worrying about the 5 hr cut off finished in 4:45:11 so very pleased!Lovely Marshalls but 2 laps hard especially seeing the second lap mile markers when still on first lap!!Ran 20 miles before a 10 second walk at water station.Chuffed with that!Ran u the underpass and all the way to the finish.A great day
Some very fast runners hereI'm just hoping to squeeze in under the 5 hours!Did 2:14 at Oxford Half so entirely possible but will be close.Not liking the weather forecast for Sunday but hopefully the wind will be blowing in the right direction!Think I'm having a dip in confidence as Sunday gets closer Excited though
Dont think im going to make it.I havent run since August BH weekend as caught flu then a bacterial chest infection which I'm currently on antibiotics for.Up until illness all ok and had done a 18 mile run and two 16 mile runs.But thats not enough and with the lingering coughing,sore throat and general tiredness I know I cant safely run a marathon in just over 5 weeks.Gutted.
Is the transfer option still open or is there someone here who would take my place?
