Hi Tony,

Brilliant account of your day - like with the others, the memories come flooding back to me and will stay with you forever.

I hope they managed to film you crying at the end so my video can be consigned to the recycle bin I remember it being quite emotional at the end with Louise (my wife) running up to catch me closely followed by Tom or Dan to take photos and film whilst trying not to get in the way.

The memories you will have from the 4 months are to be cherished. Well done Sir.

Hi Andrea,

Great few posts on the event. Thank you for sharing. Actually have a tear in my eye reading all these reports. I remember the tunnels well - the banging music and the various people stopping with their pants down for a 1 or 2

Just brilliant. Well done.

HI Tony - nice to hear from you.

I'd love to run Paris again. As it happens I was at Disneyland Paris - up until Saturday but was travelling home before the Marathon otherwise it would have been great to pop over. Should have planned it better.

As you know - I was injured during the training which meant three weeks out - so don't beat yourself up about it too much. It played on my mind for a while but eventually faded - and I ran Chester.

Plus like you - it was my first Marathon - so maybe we shouldn't beat ourselves up about it. Maybe one thing that ASICS should put in place is a follow-up day. I honestly felt dumped to one side once the whole event was over - a visit to Victor would/could have helped.

Of course I still talk to the ASICS 2014 runners - but nobody else. That is a shame.

Well done Amy. Look forward to reading your report.

Well done Tom - I can understand your frustration. You work so hard and then BOOM - something happens to derail it all.

Still - you achieved a cracking time! A time I can only dream of.

Well done - don't dwell on it. It may eat you up for a while (it did with me) but once you do the next one or start training for the next one those feelings will go.

Well done again.

Well done Tony. Great time for a first time. 45 seconds is nothing for the next one - I knocked 42 mins of my Paris time so you'll be fine : LOL.

Well done.

It's a bit crap Tim. Spoken to you on Twitter of course but thought I'd pop in here to wish you the best.

Like you pointed out - it is a bt of DejaVu. However do not think it could just only be a stress fracture. I was told that by Sarah but turns out it wasn't a stress fracture after all - but not diagnosed until after the run.

Turns out I had Anterior Compartment Syndrome. This was diagnosed eventually by my cousin Jon (who is lead Physio for Bupa) - read about it here: 


I'm not questioning anyone - but the initial diagnosis was wrong and I spend the whole of the campaign thinking I had a stress fracture.

Good luck with everything and now I'm off back to the quiet of simply lurking - especially as there is no Sub-5 category
