I loved it all. The city, the race, the after race social in Finneghans and beyond. We too bumped into the Sheffield crew and they were a lively bunch. Great to meet you all and I hope our paths cross at future events. 3:06 for me which was an accurate reflection of my training and effort. Sub 3 for my mate Nick which was a fantastic achievement.
Hi folks. Expo done. Historic part of the city explored. Tapas eaten. Beers consumed. Sensible day tomorrow before the big day on Sunday. Maybe a little warm but what a friendly city. So far so good.
Finnegan's found easily enough too. Our whole flight from Gatwick this morning seemed to be running the marathon. We'll be there from 4pm. Come and say Hi. We should be easy to spot being the knackered blokes wearing the race t shirts and medals struggling to hold a glass.
If you follow the Valencia Marathon on Facebook you get about 3 updates a day. Not all of which have English translations but you get the gist. Remember race starts at 9:00am folks.
What do you reckon drinks and social at 4pm or is earlier better. It normally takes me a couple of hours to even think about eating or drinking after a marathon?
