Diogenes My first marathon.  I had unrealistic expectations of how prepared I was.  Nothing can make up for miles under the belt.  Having said that I totally enjoyed the experience.  All my issues are of my own making, apart from the all but inedible pasty.  My knees and my feet hate me but I am trying to love myself for my achievement.  It was good to run with Torbay for the first 13 miles. Unaffiliated 4:32:59 4:52:25 4:30:00 4:52:25 42.97

paskha 33rd marathon, 9th Duchy. No prediction for this, I just hoped I would be able to get round.  Terrible lack of training ... no long runs since Cornish Marathon in November ... three weeks before I had the flu ... two weeks before I managed 10 miles on the Friday & 10 miles on the Saturday (walking some) ... one week before I did 14 miles in torrential rain - apart from a few shorter runs, that was it.  Ironically, I got 3rd FV55 trophy AND 3rd ladies team trophy (last year I did a PB and beat all the FV50s, but got no award!) I had a new digi camera, so spent some time taking photos ... Ran quite a lot of the time with Hippo which was good!  I haven't written to the organisers yet but they need to know it was a serious disaster when there was NO WATER at mile 9, then none at mile 12 either.  I stopped running as it was warm.  Back on the main road there was a shop!!!!!!!! thank god I found my locker £1 coin in my bum bag ... 60p for 500ml bottle of water, how crazy is that Mounts Bay Harriers 4:28:24 5:38:12 5:38:12 49.21
plodding hippo Given my injury, i was delighted to have been able to run without walking until almost 10 miles at 12 min miling.
The complete absence of water between 6 and 15 miles didnt help my situation though.Very lonely second loop-and surprisingly i managed to overtake one other person.A fairly undulating course, but the water issue and attitude to slower runners do mean that i wont be back to do this one again.Still, one cant like EVERY marathon in the country!! 100 Marathon Club 4:16:46 5:02:10 5:49:10 40.25
