A plod around this to 'bag' my Welsh marathon. Race number 105. Good grief how did that happen? A big, phat PB. Very hilly and warm in the first half. Stomach cramps from mile 22 onwards. No blisters or chaffing.
212 marathon runners / 151st position.
Really good day if a little more sunny than would have been ideal. Race to plan until mile 23 when I simply had nothing left to give. Very satisfied with my new pb but still have the elusive 4 hour barrier to break. Maybe next year?
That hurt! hanging on for the last 11 miles wasn't what I planned, but this is still a great, if hard race. Great to meet Watford Wobble who can testify to the size of my blisters. Great run by Gen X too!
Got cramp in right hamstring again in EXACTLY the same place as last year! Had to stop and stretch again, slow down and stop a couple times in last 4 miles. It must be the hills, never had cramp any other time. The hills just kept coming, and very big some of them, a very tough course. Still managed to finish 12 or 13th or something similar I think and got trophy for first male over-35. Lovely weather, scenic course for the most part and friendly local-support. Well organised but not much of a goody bag this year. Incredibly close to my prediction, in fact I never really got cramp just wanted to be right so I pretended! It's a flat marathon for me next year.
First marathon so found it pretty hard of course. But apart from at the drink stations I'm proud to say I didn't stop or walk at all. Went very slowly towards the end, but never actually stopped
Tough course. Very undulating and was quite warm on the day.
