DaveH Should be fun. Looking forward to a nice 35mph Easterly in the last 5M. - UPDATE - Well that was a lot of fun. Went off slowly looking for a 3:30 jog, realised I was doing a 3:15 and got to halfway in something like 1:32 although I couldn't tell you as my effing Garmin was having a fit about Unaffiliated 2:54:40 3:06:45 3:30:00 3:06:45 65.84

Jogging Jon Best time since June and it was so cold (note to self, do not run December marathons in just Fetch shirt and shorts). Great to see so many fetchies and good support from the fetchpoint. Thanks guys Wrekin Road Runners 3:44:35 4:16:16 4:46:33 45.14

Kevski Bloody amazing! The hard work paid off and I knocked off 6 and a half minutes off my PB in the cold and wind on a tough very hilly course. Managed 23rd place in a time of 3:hrs 1 minute and 6 secs. Met so many great Fetchies and my first experience of the Fetch point was amazing. So, so happy.

MartinCunningham Absolutely delighted to get under the 3:30 ... thanks to some grim determination along the seafront, along the beach and the final yards down the ramp, under the road and into the shopping centre... last six miles were very tough and my legs were hurting ... but its a great feeling now.... I threw the race strategy out in the first mile as I was feeling great and went for it... so that's why the final few miles hurt so much. Doh!

Naomi P Hoping the weather stays fine for this and that the legs hold out, one week after the 30 mile Doyen of the Downs... *UPDATE* Very very hilly (for me) and cold again but I enjoyed this, felt pretty strong throughout. Decent route, if you don't mind lots of running on pavements, and well organised, the marshals were great. Nice horsebrass as a memento too. Pleased with the time as I wasn't racing it by any means, must be getting a bit fitter. Unaffiliated 3:28:37 3:55:33 4:30:00 4:10:34 54.04

PSC ITB Pain from mile 11ish, but what a terrific race!  PB as predicted.  Started way to fast - first half well below sub 2 then started to slow down - see training log for a good view of an astonishing positive split ;-)  Still, I'm very pleased.

Runna A really special race. Support from marshals and spectators was amazing and organisation brilliant, also the weather was almost perfect just a bit cold. Special thanks to all at fetchpoint, you didn't know I was a fetchie but really cheered me on, thanks. I'm really pleased and surprised with my run, felt great. Had planned on taking it easy and did til about 1/2 way in 1.35 but was running with another female and my competitive instincts took over and I pushed on and finally got away from her in the last few miles.

Silver Strider A bitterly cold day and one full of nervous anticipation. A complete desire to do myself justice but woefully worried of coming up short. Under prepared, overtrained and under the weather health wise. Very little substance based pre race stratergy. Damn good tunes on the Ipod tho!! Emotions got the best of me several times. Was sooooooooh in the zone ran straight past my children supporting me - never saw them, regretted it ever since. Not many supporters out that day. Blown away by time. In hind site running 28 miles 2 weeks before was not my best move, running hard on a chest infection - nothing short of foolish, set off way too fast.
