Hi Vincent, I have a place in Berlin marathon however I have decided not to run it this year. I am not sure on details for transferring though and whether you can or not. Does anyone know whether places can be transferred?
I was so disappointed to see on the NPS Lions website this morning that they are full and are not accepting on the day entries. I did the Seaford Half last june and paid in advance but on race day I saw there were so many people paying on the day that I thought I could do that this year.
If anyone has a place that they cannot use anymore I will buy it off you!
Wow it was hot yesterday! Managed to finish my first marathon in 3:59:24, I got to the 800 metres to go sign and the guy on the microphone announced that the clock had hit the 4hour mark and I felt like giving up! My legs were in so much pain and I really really wanted to get just under 4 hours! but then, I looked down at my watch and realised my stopwatch said I still had a few minutes (according to my chip time) so I thought I might be able to make it and just kept going and going and going (felt like it took an hour!) but managed 3:59, so pleased as it was my first, but did hurt from mile 16 onwards and had a stitch from mile 12 to 20 then a lovely personal trainer gave me advice to get rid of my stitch and it worked straight away! (thank you nice man!)
the cheering was amazing and anytime I felt like walking people would say 'come on you can do it' and somehow it made me keep going.
Had the best day yesterday and a well deserved cider (or three) on the beach afterwards and a nice greasy dinner!
