Great stuff Shedboy. Sounds like an eventful race, you should be proud.
Splits don't show these stops and injured calf really, just a a slight slow down so a race report would be good to say what happened.
Good luck to Susan, hope she will pop in with some of her famous wisdom. Someone wish her well (Howard?). Will be a wonderful day I'm sure.
Shedboy, sounds lovely. I've run with a photo a few times and it really does lift you. Just remember to stick to the plan, no mad on the day, "Heyyy.. I feel fine, I'm running all of this..". Aim is to finish, not break the world record.
