Great race. Really enjoyed the day. PB course if you get the weather, but you got to expect the wind if you race on the coast. The bottled water is far better than cups. Well organised. I have a garmin trace. Will try and get it on map my run. On garmin web site at moment.
That was my first marathon. 3:14, got to half way at 1:27 I have now experienced a new level of pain. Start to 18 miles still comfortably under 3 hours. 18 to 20 now I'm suffering. 20 to 22 now I'm really suffering 22 to finish stop, stretch, walk, run, repeat to finish. At the finish I said never again. I have now slept. Bring on Edinburgh in May. Hopefully won't miss 5 to 6 weeks of 18 week schedule due to injury and this will make the difference. My Garmin measured it at 26.5 it was spot on with mile markers up to about 23/24 miles then went astray. Like has been said, the course measure will have been done on best line, not keeping to left. I am pretty sure that high 5 and water was available at both stations, I only took water, as I had my own support team.
