My advice is don't do the half until after you've seen the cardiologist. You will need their advice and probably an ECHO if you havent had one. You could have one of the inheritable cardiac problems. There's always other half marathons. This must be sorted first
The women's urinals were hilarious! I just had to use them for curiosity value. They were lines of back to back 3ft high columns with sinks in them. No one had a clue how to use them so some women were squatting in them, some hovering above, some had given up and were just peeing in the grass in front of them.
The official way was to use a cardboard funnel provided which you then had to construct. me and another woman were having a giggle over that.
After you had used it (another laugh but I would have to get too graphic for family reading) there was nowhere to dispose of the funnel so there were women roaming aimlessly around trying to find a bin.
I've got a great photo of me and the woman with the outfit made of condoms in front of the 'women's urinals' signs.
I've got a new favourite saying! "Only in the London Marathon"
Can't look at too many photos yet, limited internet access but will when I get home.
I can't put my time in, am on a borrowed iPad and don't know how to use it. My time was 11.02 for mile six. (that speed didn't last!)
I'm now on a walking holiday in Anglesea! Booked before I knew I was in the marathon (which was 28th Jan) so well chuffed I even finished. Even more chuffed that my mum was so proud and in tears when I went to see her with my medal.
I all makes any amount of bloody pain in legs worthwhile!
