My 2004 London Marathon

Time: 3:45

Followed the RW 3:45 training plan & did 3:45:34. Best moment was passing club supporters at just before 25M & realising I still felt good & had plenty of puff when I'd anticipated needing an ambulance at that stage before the race. Seeing my sister & daughter in the crowd (seperately) & hearing my daughter's excited cries of MUM! Being passed early on by a chap in green thong covered in body paint as Tarzan & passing later a bloke running with a wooden box around his groin with Roy or Ray's toolbox written on it. Hilarious.

Did even 10k splits & loved it especially as I only plan to do the one!
