There is a Ch.4 highlights programme.
Having spent time running with 4th, 3rd and 2nd ladies at various points during the race the tv camera bike was pretty much always in close proximity - I can see why elites would get annoyed with it's presence. The OH didn't manage to avoid the pre-race 'in the can' interview with Katherine Merry but it is unlikely to be used, they'll probably use those of the first three finishers.
Reiki - Even if it wasn't pretty you still got pretty much the pre-race expectation sort of time. When you do nail a 'pretty' one you can look firward to a chunk of that.
Stimpy - Likewise, I reckon only 1 in 10 marathons go perfectly smoothly, the other 9 are the buildung blocks towards that day when you're due a cracker.
Wardi - As said yesterday before blood was spilt in the pub, 3:35 is quite some result considering the prospects 2 weeks ago.
As a result of the cautious running in the closing stages yesterday and the clear inducation that fitness levels are in good shape it has been decided to bring the next marathon forward, so Leicester Marathon in 13 days is next up. Can't wait
