My 2004 London Marathon

Time: 5:26

First mara - injured and undertrained but loved it!

I overtook a rhino only to find him ahead of me a bit later. I again overtook him and was increasingly frustrated to find myself tailing him again further on. Another runner then kindly pointed out there were several identical rhinos racing!!!

The weather was foul at the end, my legs, back and feet ached like hell... but the crowd were great the forumites a true inspiration and the race something that I am honoured and moved to have been a part of.
