Well I completed the Marathon yesterday. 4.05.55. I was looking for under 4 hours and was on course till about 21 when I had lower back pain which made running really uncomfortable. hey ho! I completed it, and in not too bad a time. It was a tough race. Uneven surface, narrow pathways, and some very hilly bits.
It was a very good race though, it deserves more credit. The marshals were amazing, and the medal etc at the end was spot on.
I felt the pain of a lot of people who crossed the line after me, but it was a great atmosphere, but my next marathon I am for it to be a bit flatter.
