Ok, so everytime I download my Manchester marathon certificate, it reads 3:30:04. Quite keen on my chip time really. Harrumph!
GM, if it helps, it took me 8 attempts to get under 3:30. I came really close twice: 3:30.15 at Chester and 3:31:24 at Manchester. The Chester Marathon was a 12min PB and I was delighted for around 16secs. Then I started doing the whole analysing thing. I also had the pleasure of watching a 3:30 pacer disappear into the distance. You will get there.
Soups, awesome parkrun PB, stuff of dreams for me. Not going to get that pushing a buggy.
Malcs, seems to be a pattern on this forum for the man/woman of the moment to go onto immense times. Well done and maybe see you at York again.
To everyone on this forum, thank you for your support. I was giddy at sharing the news with people who can appreciate what it means to achieve such a PB. Plus the humour and culinary advice has been second to none. Mrs Hans was just relieved that there was a successful chip time. She was pleased not to have to live with grumpy me for a third time.
