My VLM 2010: Jaime Keeble (5:25.57)

My first marathon - but definitely not my last!

This was my first marathon and it was great.  I didn't reach my target time (to go under five hours) but I finished in 5:25.57.  I got to that dreaded 20-mile point and then my legs got very heavy.

I used a combination of running and walking after that.  I will be back next year hopefully - I hope to get sub-5:00 and hopefully my husband will join me too.  I think I have inspired him!

It was a great day, and a great thing to be part of!  Well done to everyone who took part. 

I hope that LOTTIE (I don't know your number but I saw you being aided by St. Johns around Mile 25) continued to make it to the finish!
