My 2004 London Marathon

Time: 5:35

The biggest surprise was seeing the major from "who wants to be a millionaire" in real life.

My goal was 4hrs 30.:But after my knee injury during training my finish was 5hrs35mins.

Do differently: I would maybe add more longer runs into my training.

Key to success: was carbo loading and also following a training programme.

I will be celebrating once all my sponsorship money is collected: At the moment I think I have around £1000 if not maybe more. This has been raised for the Ardgowan hospice in Greenock.

"What an experience, I will never forget": I have not seen so many people in the one place, at the one time. The best marathon I have done so far. I only hope for a place next year.
