I think the fancy italics might be a side effect of popping your marathon cherry

Great marathon report Welshgje, sounds like you really had to dig deep for that finish.

Well done and good luck with your next marathon

Welshgje give yourself a pat on the back and stop being so hard on yourself.

Take a step back  just for a moment and imagine it was someone else who had gone through eveything that you have gone through in the last 16 weeks. Would you be telling them to be disappointed with their time and not to enjoy the fact and be proud that they had just completed their first marathon.

I think you have done  BRILLIANT.

No wonder you suffered at the end with the lack of training, the fact that you knuckeled down and finished is what it is all about.

So you know now you can do the distance. When is the next one.

 Personally I wouldnt jump straight in and do an Autumn one. Build a good base and go for next year.

Looking forward to reading your account of the day.

And give yourself that pat on the back.

Welshgje. You are going to feel amazing after your marathon.The satisfaction that you get that knowing that you have achieved your goal will stay with you for ages.Sure you will feel knackered but get something to eat within the 1st hour after you finish and then you can sit back and enjoy the feeling of being a marathoner.

I agree with Ruth that making a list is a great idea to reduce the stress of packing.

I also like to make a list, usually just a mental note of all the things that i am going to indulge in after the race. I,ve done the Paris Half a few times and you can get some really amazing foods there.I dare say the wine might be OK too.
