Not a pb but it was my first real race in 7 years and sub 4 was my target for today. At 57 it makes me a very happy bunny. 2018 will probably be my next and possibly last marathon. Well that's what I'm telling Mrs Road Runner and my physio
Despite being tripped up after 2.5 miles and grazing my right knee, everything went to plan and finished in 3.58.06. Pretty much even pace and so, so happy to go sub 4 again at the tender age of 57 and not running any races for seven years. My best marathon ever!
Sorry, there should have been a follow up post here but it obviously didn't make it.
Any way what I thought I posted was:
....but my best marathon yet. Almost flat pace for the whole race. Ended up with a time of 3.58.06. Many thanks to all of you here on this thread who have supported me over the past few years, given me sage advice and helped me believe that it was possible. I am on such a high at the moment and three pints worse for wear!
