Hi ,
It looks like you're using an ad blocker.

The revenue generated from the adverts on the site is a critical part of our funding - and it's because of these ads that I can offer the site for free. But using the site for free AND blocking the ads doesn't feel like a great thing to do, which is why this box is so large and inconvenient. Some sites will completely block your access, but I'm not doing that - I'm appealing to your good nature instead. Did you know that you can allow ads for specific sites, whilst still blocking them on others?

This event is listed on these dates:

Havn't trained enough to try for a PB but I'll use this as a training run before Newry on the 26th.....( Race # 72 ). (Also going to run the first relay section as part of a team then carry on)
Build-up screwed by broken ribs and then, having caught up a bit, illness. Going to go for it though, and hopefully not blow up too early...
Got a taste for a new pb at Connemara and Belfast should be a bit easier, but it all depends on the day. Would love a new pb and maybe even go for the sub 3.15, not being too greedy am I

Had to sweat this one out for the chip time but it came in :-)

3:16:20 chip time. I really pushed, and while 3:15 looked possible up to 18-19, I just couldn't keep that pace. Still very pleased with a) a big (12m30) PB, and b) holding it together through the last 10k, unquestionably the hardest section of race I've ever done (not the course, I mean my fatigue and mental battles). While there are a few hills, and it's certainly not an easy course, it's interesting except for the obligatory industrial estate section from 19-21 ish. Water in plastic cups is crap for a marathon with aspirations though (although at least they had plenty of stations to make up for the tiny amount that you could actually drink at each one). Weather - overcast till 15/16 ish then sun broke through, so tough last few miles as it warmed up.
2 hrs 48mins 51 secs, quicker that I expected I felt fine until 19-20 miles. Having to run on past the old entrance to Gideons Green - up the hill to the new entrance, from here my mind started to go lol From then I didnt enjoy the cycle path. Didnt mind the Dargan area, Felt better in and around the City - until Ormeau Road and Ravenhill Road. They were very long and being able to see so far in front of you at that stage isnt good (for me anyway).

Overall I enjoyed my first Marathon in Belfast.
