Well done Lee and Kk for completing the marathon.
Like you Kk I walked around and could not find anyone
shame the layout was different from the map!
Yet again my race did not go to plan..
On Saturday I had a migraine then was very sick after trying to consume the lovely pasta meal my sister had cooked. I was even wondering about withdrawing at this stage. After an ok. night I decided to go ahead with my plan C of just getting round. It was a great event but because of how I felt it was all a bit overwhelming. It was FANTASTIC having 9 members of my family popping up 5 times with their banner and hugs and reassuring words. Also a hug from RW Super Caz at mile 17.
To be honest I felt weary and had a headache from the beginning. I walked in parts and found it very hot. I was not bad enough to give up just took it very steady...time became irrelevant.....I think 5.57 in the end..
I have just read that a runner collapsed and died at the finish. This morning I am counting my blessings.
I will maybe add some more to my report later but for now thankyou so much everyone for your valued support and advice.
Hope we hear from Snapdragon soon.
