In short: HARD!!!!! the welsh sure do know how to make a marathon hard...but good In full: Well what can i say, this was my 5th marathon and really i should have expected it to be hilly (Well it was in Wales) but i must admit I cried like a baby at 16 miles and I was convinced that my time would me measured on calender, this course must have been mapped by a Royal MARINE!!!
All said though I am glad I did this marathon and only 8 or so minutes off PB which I am really proud of because the course was like nothing I had run before! the road sign at 2 mile was a nice touch....14% incline warning triangle as it gave us a clue as what was to come ;)
The course stewards and officials were so good, it was as if each of them Had a personal wish for you to do well and they really made the route safe and secure loads of water, energy drink, sweets bananas, i was convinced i would get a full sunday roast at mile 20!
Scenery was breathtaking, medal was nice, and the public cheered you like you was a long lost son!!!!
This marathon was designed for Giants and this morning I feel like I could tackle the world,
In short: good but more runners needed in the full marathon In full: Wolverhampton really tries hard for this event, i think more should take part in the full marathon. I know Wolverhampton may not be as romantic as London or New york.....but its still the same distance ;) Date of review: September 7, 2009
