02:44:37 - Never had a cushion from halfway, so was a stressful experience. 1.21/1.23 splits. Puked all over the finish line too .OK, it wasn't the 2.42 I thought I might be capable of, but considering how hard I had to work in the second half, I'm over the moon with that. Only took 46 road marathons and 16 years to get an invite into the posh bogs as VLM.
Full report to follow (JAP had a blinder - I was with him until 10 miles then he pushed on). I'm off for a pint.
Massive congratulations, Dan!!! Well deserved and we'll have a decent ale waiting in the local for you when you are home, recovered and ready!
