Eggy, Jimbob - you are now my complete heroes. My first marathon (all those months ago last October) was 5 15 and I had resigned myself to just being a slow runner. Thanks for the motivation
Thanks for saying Joanna. Actually I've been inspired and encouraged by many on this thread (including Eggy) to push on and work harder. It's a great place for that. I've been lucky in the sense that i've been able to go from one campaign to the next which helps. Eggy's recent marathon in Paris was a great moment for him and those of us who know him. Since his 2012 marathon PB, he has had various injuries and lay offs. It's very hard to come back from that, but in Paris this year he finally beat that PB 3 years later and seeing his reaction on the finish line video is a moment to savour. He's cool character but you can feel the emotion of it. That journey must have been difficult but he got the eye of the tiger and achieved what he set out to do. It's very satisfying when you put it together.
