Bosun Tony Looking forward to this one. Everyone is saying how good it is, looks a bit hilly mind ! Maybe not one for a PB but going to enjoy the run whatever the time is : UPDATE, PB, what a great race. Loads of downhill but a few ups as well. Doing this one again !

cake muncher Brilliantly organised event. Placed 8th / 2nd vet. Well chuffed with that after only one 15 mile long run since London. Has got me wondering if I should start training properly for my next one! Falkland Trail Runners 2:42:41 2:44:42 2:50:35 75.82

Coffee Addict My first marathon. Absolutely loved it...but disappointed with the time i took! As they say, what you put in is what you get out of it. So, my training was not upto the mark compared with my ambitions. The last 8 miles really hurt! Unaffiliated 5:38:44 5:38:44 4:45:00 5:38:44 36.30
Dave_K Found this very tough. Realised early on that pb was out the question. Sorry to all those who bet on me. Still happy with the run. Fantastic day, race, everything. Nice to see Flip again at the start. Will be back for this one next year. Will blog more detail when I've sorted it all in my head :-) Unaffiliated 3:51:04 3:51:04 3:45:00 4:14:08 50.48

frisp Really disappointing day for me. Felt really good going into this but just didn't work out. Had to work too hard to set reasonable pace for first few miles so early effort was too high (was already behind going through halfway in 93 minutes). Second half was predictable and slowed down throughout with last couple of miles being really tough and slow-completely blown up. Thought I'd learned this lesson but training had been good and expected more. 

Perfect day for running and still a great marathon. Manx Tri Club 3:05:54 3:12:37 3:03:00 3:15:46 65.03

Selfish Git!!! Well yes its 66 mins slower than my best but really surprised and very happy it wasn't alot more. FA training for the last 13 weeks due to apathy however been inspired again. Many thanks to Mark and Caroline who I met at 17 miles and we helped each other all the way to the finish. Fantastic weather conditions and the lack of supporters (only due to the remote route) was more than compensated by the sheer friendliness of the competitors.  I will be back in 2009 for my 8th time. See you there. Greenock Glenpark Harriers 3:21:05 4:27:30 4:27:30 49.16

Ultracat Glad to finish.  Lovely day for running, sunny but cool with one brief rain shower.  Struggled from about 16 miles, stopped to walk as foot was a bit numb and never really got going again.  Well organised race as it always is. Metro Aberdeen 4:18:27 4:25:15 4:57:41 53.73

z1000jeff Under 3.50 would be nice (for PB) but probably not entirely realistic in current shape. Real target 3.56 is the bloke across the road's time for the Paris marathon this year .... CAN'T let him beat me - I'd never be able to look him in the eye again ! 

EDIT Time on the clock. With  any luck thi swill come down to sub 3:40.  PB YAY ! 
EDIT Damn. I could have found 24 seconds from somewhere. Never happy ! Unaffiliated 3:33:38 3:40:23 3:56:00 3:40:23 60.16
