Ah that's what it was Marders! I had almost an extra half a mile bonus on my Garmin when I crossed the line! Massive congratulations on your run there, would I be right in saying you'd already done 10 miles before you started?! You were absolutely flying when you came past me the opposite way and a big, big lead on the second place man too. Superb result. I'll be back next year to race it but I won't be anywhere close to your finish time if you do it again. I really enjoyed the on and off road aspect of 26.2 miles, less hammering of the legs!
Fantastic race reports, congrats to all the Abo runners this weekend, some cracking results.
Superb 10 time Lev.
Joolska, you know you'll be like a coiled spring come race day with the taper madness.
I had a relaxed run around the first Chelmsford marathon on Sunday, no heroics, just aimed at the London GFA target of 3:15. The course was quite mixed with road, trail, mud and grass so it was enjoyable to run the marathon distance without the usual pounding on the legs! Gave Marders a cheer en route too but he was moving too fast to hear! 3:12xx finish time and set up nicely for the training coming up for my spring 2015 26.2 PB attempt using a speed sharpening block and then the up to 70mpw P&D.
