Cleo 3rd attempt at sub 3:45 - run 3:48 twice.
**UPDATE** 1st Marathon abroad and thoroughly enjoyed the whole weekend. Problem with having a hotel 100m from start meant we didn't get to the start very early and was very nearly at the back of the field at the off! Never mind 4th attempt will be Cardiff!

Hanneke Well, that was a good race! Weather perfect, sunny, cool, bit windy. The most boring course you can possibly imagine, although... maybe not? I ran a good race, took 40 minutes of my PB, but made one mistake, which messed up my sub 4 time. I ran well on target for 3.45 until halfway, then the pace dropped slightly to my 3.50 schedule, which I sustained, however, from 25km I had to start taking water and energy drink from the waterstations as my bottles had run out. I choked on the water first time round, so lost a few valuable minutes there and from then on had to stop and drink, losing even more valuable minutes! I reckon I would have run an easy 3.50/3.45 having deducted time for drinking.

Next time around, I am going to have someone stand at 25k to hand me new bottles! Why on earth did they have to serve the drinks in cups!!! 

This off course does mean I HAVE to run another marathon! 

Good news is: calf torn before NY held out perfectly, legs already almost painfree and the whiplash wasn't too bad in all this, although the neck did cease up at 13k, I managed to massage and stretch the spasm out of the muscle and ran with a stiff right shoulder... but that had nor reflection on my time! It was the water... :-(

Now I better think about my next marathon... Cardiff? Amsterdam?? FELL PONIES, Black Mountains MBO 4:07:50 4:07:50 3:50:00 4:07:50 55.72
