Bit lazy of me, but race report is on the now only occasionally resurrected blog: http://runninghomeforchristmas.wordpress.com/2014/10/27/ich-bin-ein-frankfurter/
The potted summary is: in the back of mind, I thought 4.08s might be a bit of a soft pace for my current shape, but after so many bad marathon experiences over the years I couldn't quite bring myself to admit it. Come race day, I felt so bloody brilliant I just decided to go for it when the kms were coming out more like 4.05/4.06 a lot of the time. I had a wibble at 20km and wondered if I'd blown it, but decided to go for it at 30km and had a ball in the final 12km. 2.52.41. 22nd woman (3rd vet 35) and (certainly this morning), 45th on Po10. Get in.
