Ha ha - well it wasn't boring..we were lucky with the weather so was only a little muddy in places with a couple of puddles. Course was on grass and trail with fab winding trails through the woods, long flat stretches alongside fields and some great downhills too.
I'm in as part of a team for the second year - certainly not up to doing it solo! Loved the event last year was a great atmosphere, 'fun' course, well organised and fab medal so looking forward to it very much. Good luck!
Well I'm certainly suffering this morning! Certainly was a run of two halves for me - flew the first half feeling great then did struggle a bit for the second half - think it was the long slog up the A166 that did it! Still beat my first marathon time by less than a minute to come in at 4.11.13 so can't complain too much about that and very pleased looking at the age / gender positions.
The support from the crowds was fabulous and shouts from family, friends an complete strangers got me round and even up that horrible hill at the end (why why?) Felt dreadful afterwards and the oddly warm and sunny weather threw me a bit - think I lost a lot of salt judging from my skin! And horror have a black toenail - euurrrghh!
Sorry for those who didn't make the start or had to pull out but there's always another run. Don't know at the moment if there will be another marathon for me but never say never!
