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?

Thanks,
Ian Williams aka Fetch

This was a horrible race - my first marathon. The problem was in the training living in South London, basing most of it on a fairly short commute to central London and running sporadically and not concentrating that much on long runs - and those I did regularly ended in cramp - most horrifically so when I pulled up in Regent's Park and had to hobble all the way home.

Having got quite comfortable running half marathons, I was once again naïve in how to approach the marathon distance. Still though the first miles were awesome, running in such cramped surroundings and being cheered on by so many people.
I was fine to halfway (1:40 ish) buit at 18 miles hit a huge wall that was followed by a huge rain shower and a chill in the air that left my lucky baggy cotton grey shorts and cotton t-shirt 3 times their weight and perishingly cold.

I shivered and crawled my way to the finish. I wasn't going to quit, I never envisaged such a thing happening and I was most proud to be the first person I knew to run a marathon. But the experience left me physically and mentally scarred for a few months earlier - a knee injury left me unable to run properly for around 6 months.
