Well done bassrunna sounds like you had a great time. I had the pleasure of the London marathon a few years ago and so far have found only the great north run and Dublin marathon get anywhere near to the atmosphere of London. The wall of sound you hit at canary wharf is unforgettable!!
Yes I'd agree I was surprised at the six minute mile start esp as he didn't seem to have taken much fuel on board. But I guess you learn more when it goes wrong than when you get a PB. I hope to never to go through what he did mind!!
cant believe they are not re-funding you guys!! I studied in Sheffield and fancied returning to do a race there one day.....i certainly wont be doing this one!! You'd think they would at least give people free or discounted entry to another event.
In response to Matt's comments about Edinburgh, i was in that race. I believe the story was that the water was left out at night and someone stole a load of it, which meant runners at the back where arriving at drinks stations with little or no water on offer.
And glad to hear youve got some morals Alan, i ran your inskip HM, it was a good race and well organised.
