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?

DIY Diva
I was all ready and wotnot but the bliddy pen I was in had peeps struggling up the 1st mile and walking by mile 3. I just thought sod this I'm not threading through folks for the next 23 miles and had a bimble.
Very happy and all that but left with a feeling that I wish there were some validating of your ability to be in a 3.45 pen.
Ran with Josh
ING New York marathon. 5k 30:44 10k 1:01:54 15k 1:33:39 20k 2:06:48 Half 2:16:28 25k 2:48:25 30k 3:27:57 35k 4:13. First half was OK - averaging 6:30 per km. Queensboro bridge at approx. 25km was tough and pace slowed a lot. Struggled up 1st Avenue into the Bronx and the last 7km seemed to last forever. Achilles held up well and felt OK with hydration, food and breathing but legs were like lead over the last few miles - not enough high mileage in training.
Have to catch the Staten Island ferry at 6:00am 'O Joy'
No: 5210
Ran with David - his aim was sub 5 hours so goal achieved, he did so well - shame NY Times cut off the names in the paper at 4.44.59 this year!
DJ Bangey
My first marathon, went really well for the first 18 miles then i started to struggle. After that it was a case of hanging on for my sub 3 hour goal. Just managed to in the end, so really happy. Fantastic crowds and support.
In! OUT! A hamstring pull three weeks before and a seriously moronic 1:33 first half in the Tigger costume led to a seriously rubbish and painful second half
Debbie G
Travelling with 2:09 events :-)

Well the day has come and I'm off to New York today :-)

Training went really well until about 3 weeks ago then v heavy cold put paid to all training :-( then recently I've picked up an injury due to a tight IT band so sunday will now very much be a tougher experience than I had hoped - but I will do all I can to finish and get my medal !

Brilliant experience - managed to run at 4:15 pace till around 15 miles then decided to take it easy and protect my leg so run/walked the remainder.
monkey harris
well happy just been accepted through the ballot, i will be fresh for this
The Alchemist
My training all points to this time. But then, so did London!.............. Where the Hell did that come from? An unbelievably joyous, life-affirming and fantastic occasion!! I still cannot believe it. Boston here we come! Thanks to everyone who bet on me.
Sam Davies
Was on for a 3.20 - 3.25 finish up to mile 23 but cramped up in miles 24 and 25. Finished last three with 9 minute miles.

An amazing experience though
Only done one marathon before, London 2004. Want to beat my time then - 3hr-34m.
My first marathon, and I loved it. I am so chuffed I could float away. I was looking for 4:30 a couple of months agao, but an injury to the knee (possible ITB) meant I revised my plans to just getting round, and running as far as I could before the knee gave up. Set off on 4:30 pace, and held it to half way, then just started getting a bit slower and slower every mile, but I ran the lot, the knee held together, and I loved it.
This was TOUGH, but best race I've ever ran!! How loud & vocal & supportive are Americans?!! Loved every minute from getting up all excited at 3.30am!!
A brilliant jog through the 5 Boros...great fun!
New York - excellent trip, finished work and went over to New York, race suffered in the latter stages due to cram, great experience
