I wish I was working from home today. Just about made it onto the bus this morning. Should have took the day off.
Well that was a lot harder than 21 miles! Definitely found the heat hard. First marathon in 3hrs 40.49. On the plus side beat my target of 3hr 45, and I've got the GFA for London. But went through half way at 1.45 and had the 3.30 pacers in sight for a few miles. But can't be too harsh it was my first one!
Agree about 24 mile marker, confused me greatly, especially as I was really struggling at that stage.
Well done to everyone who ran. I have so much respect for anyone who runs a marathon, regardless of time. Don't think you can appreciate how hard it actually is until you do one.
