finding it tough getting motivation back to get out myself - but entry for larne is now open, entered that to hopefully get me back on track - definitely recommend it, great spring marathon, superb organisation and good weather most years (somehow!)
Martin well done on the ultra, and Mark too - amazing achievement, I can't start to think about running a step further than 26.2 so fair play to you! Well done on the London place too, fantastic marathon and will be really enjoyable - I missed out on the ballot again this year (5th year in a row...) but have done it twice through club places so happy enough!
I've heard good things about manchester as well - and it is a similar time of the year so I might consider that one - saying that, I'm happy to leave marathons for a while, not long back from Berlin and finally managed to go sub 4 (3.57.30) so im delighted with that for the time being!
hey all, I'm just back myself, had a bit of a holiday after Berlin, letting it all sink in..
First of all well done to all, spent the first hour back in work reading how everyone got on in Berlin, great to see so many pbs and good runs, not so good the melee that caught up some...i managed to avoid one myself near the 5km mark
Personally I finally managed to break the sub 4 barrier, 3.57.30 was my finishing time so 31 minutes faster than Berlin for me 2 years ago, over the moon with it - really was a brilliant day for running, super course and support, probably the best moment I've had since i started running, coming down the final straight under the Brandenburg Gate and knowing I had finally run sub 4, as long as I could run another 400m odd!
Can't wait for another crack at Berlin, but it took that much out of me I don't know that ill do another marathon until next autumn!
