Oh wow! Welcome to everyone!!!! I'm in for 2016.
Okay, a wee PSA before it hits anyone and they don't know it happens to heaps of people. You have accomplished something amazing completing a marathon, whether it was a pb, day out or a bit of an runnus horriblus. Your body has gone through something significant and your mind has too. In the coming days the gap with not training and the stress on your body may present itself as a bit of a down feeling. You could get a bit weepy, grumpy and as the french put it desolei (i don't think i'm spelling that right). It's completely natural, you are not a freak, lots of people get post-marathon blues!!! Have a look back over your training, remember what you've achieved and most of all know you're not alone. Big hugs! Oh....some of us find entering another race helps...just sayin'
