Good morning all. Another great day in the world of running and superbly organised once again. Thanks imski and pants for your support. However,today i feel like i`ve been hit by a double decker bus. My body is in alot of pain. My prep was better than last year and my long runs faster but my race was hell. By 20k i was hanging on for dear life and at 22k the onset of cramp ( 27k last year )slowed me even more. Probably lost 4-5 mins in the last 8k making me 6mins slower than last year in 2.27. But onwards and upwards. Also a big big well done to Istead and Ifields Dave Willing who completed the course in just over 4hrs at the age of EIGHTY.
