WP,I totally agree with the other guys,a PB is a PB,whether it be 1 second off or an hour off.
Marathons are so much to do with luck.I mean,everything can go perfectly well right up until the last minute but if you get struck down with a cold the night before your chances are over.Or if you get up on the morning not quite feeling 100% then that could cost you 30 minutes in the race.
Just put it down to experience.And my bet is you'll be putting your name down for another one before you know it.
Talking about Torfaen,i'm chief cheerleader on Sunday so keep an eye out for me!
