Well I survived my second London Marathon – no incidents or accidents.
Chuffed as PB by a whole 3 minutes ! 4:49.
Tough day on course, first half very hot, got salt encrusted shorts – nice.
I stopped for a beer for Dad at 22 miles as we watched the marathon together for many years from a pub on route 🙂 plus stopped to see family & supporters 3 times on route.
Great day but think its my last London, those roads are hard & tough.
The atmosphere was amazing, double the spectator numbers of previous years maybe due to the Olympics, Boston and the sun being out at last in London.
A full race report will follow as soon as I can sit long enough without cramping up – tired stiff legs but pain of pride 🙂
