Carl - nightmare ... What a p***k tripping you like that... Clumsy accident or not the least he could have done was help u up & apologise. Just one of those things you could never have anticipated. I know it's hard but try & take the positives - youfinished on one leg - great mental toughness .... and the not the first time you have limped to the finish either I recall! And a very respectable time in anyone's book to boot. As Carter says your day will come - he knows this with all his failures to make the start line over the past 16 months & his day came @ Manchester ... yours will too & and it will be all the more satisfying when it does
Great running Sean - you hung on well with the cramps... Noticed you had slowed late on when tracking you & assumed you had hit the wall ... Encouraging that you hadn't but frustrating that the cramps started. Have you had these before? Do you think it could have been a dehydration issue given the warm day? How was your fluid intake? Don't worry about the chicken - I had a similar experience when I got to 16 miles in Dublin and started to hear spectators shouting 'come on mr chicken', 'great running chicken man' etc and didn't dare to look round - he passed me about a mile later and ran off into the distance. Thankfully he only had a chicken hat and not the full costume so was quite relieved!
