Hi Wardi & Andy curry was fine , but not as good as some oop North.
Think I set off a tad too fast on Sunday and never felt comfy the whole race.By 14 miles I knew it was going to be a battle for survival.
Did 11 x 20 mile runs in training and I was feeling stale in the weeks leading up to the marathon.Also the foot injury I had leading up to the race made me over compensate and alter my gait.The last 10 miles were a sea of pain and exhaustion , but I never walked even though I was desperate to!!
Vowed to the missus that was that , but time is a great healer and I'm already looking at hotels for next year
Big well dones to all concerned and commiserations to those who didn't get what they wanted . . . . I've now experienced both sides of the coin.
