My 2004 London Marathon

Time: 4:06

Best moment - Seeing my wife and son shouting encouragement on the Embankment. I would have cried if I had the energy.

Worst moment - The last 800 metres felt like 800 miles.

Biggest surprise - Being overtaken by Uncle Bulgaria, two bottles of beer, 3 chickens and Elvis.

Goal - To finish (which I managed in 4:06:34)

Key to success - Long Sunday morning runs organised by my running club, Worcester Joggers. Respect to Stuart and Alan. I wouldn't have done it without their help.
