First marathon, great to get out of London for a day. Big thanks to the marshals and especially the army cadets who gave up their Sunday morning to hand out water. Some great words of encouragement from spectators and other runners.
I was a bit concerned that this wouldn't be suitable as a first marathon however having completed it I would recommend it, tough but great fun.
A nice mixture of athletes, die hards and fun runners. I got chatting to another runner which helped 4 miles flyby.
