Well guys I did it!! ONG it was brutal! It was up up up down up up down it was relentless and on tarmac I found it hard on my legs, particularly my foot, while not the broken toe the big toe on that foot thanks to the bunion. My quad joined in and it was painful for a good bit of it. But it didn’t detract from the amazing scenery and fantastic support along the route. Def one to do if you feel inclined.

Couple of pics:

I did it in 5.57.28, 10min of Kielder based on the marathon distance as both were over distance over the moon! I also felt good fuel wise def improvement over other runs/races. And weekend with the girls just made it.

Fantastic effort, gg. Marathons are tough without the hills. The last hilly one I did nearly beat me, so well done!
