My VLM 2010: moof (3:10.16)

I'm very happy with the time I achieved, but how the hell do you train for those last four miles?!

Well done to everyone who achieved their goals. This was my first marathon and my sixth "race". I managed to finish in 3:10.16. I'm very happy with the time I achieved, but how the hell do you train for those last four miles?! At 42, I think I may get a Good For Age entry next year.

On th edown side, my feet are killing me. I can only walk down the stairs backwards and trying to get off the bog seat takes me to another level of pain! I was beaten by a lepricorn but, thankfully, managed to outrun Buzz Lightyear and the bloke from Emmerdale wearing a nappy.

One final thought - the crowds, all cheering for me. I couldn't have done it without them. Thank you.
