My 2005 London Marathon

Time: 5:25:18

Wow, what a day! The sun finally shone on us all and the day was brilliant, from getting on the train at Charing Cross to the finish in the Mall.

The best moment: for me, it was seeing Big Ben in the distance and it actually coming towards me instead of appearing to disappear!

The worst moment: I don’t think there was a ‘worst moment’ except maybe the pain.

Most memorable moment: Running past the team nine supporters and having to turn round and get back to them. It was like travelling the wrong way down a one way street. I apologise to anyone I got in the way of! And taking 27 minutes off last year’s time!

What would I do differently? Absolutely nothing! (Oh except maybe a bit more pain relief en route!) I had an absolute ball. Can't wait to do it all again next year!
