The run was to be my 1st marathon and I was really buzzing all weekend. As the weather got worse, my excitement was just getting greater... as I saw it, the sense of achievement was just going up
Of course, when i heard the announcement I was instantly gutted. That said, the explanation that the Greenway was completely covered with hidden slats made sense, even if disappointing.
I heard this right before setting off and threw me in terms of pace etc. Was happy with my time, albeit just outside my other HM time. I enjoyed it but feel I could have done PB if it wasn't single file in the last stretches.
Still, much as I feel I was well prepared and had the capacity to complete, c'est la vie. It was a big call either way and I thought it was well organised. I'm not quite sure how they could have got a message to me any earlier, that's for sure.
It was my first time on the circuit and I'll be back to close the deal next year.
