First ever Marathon for me and hit my sub 4 hours target time at 3h57m10, so well chuffed.
Was a bit worried after the first km as I was already a minute behind schedule due to everyone grinding to a stop at the foot of the hill round Preston Park to funnel between the cars. Funnily enough we saw 7 tow trucks start to lift the cars earlier but they put them back :-/
Didn't panic though and remembered the advice in the book and just concentrated on getting back to the right pace and not panicing.
Thanks for all the advice guys
