Mrs Jigs (Luverlylegs)
Really want to do this again...

Personal best - Done !!!!!!

I'd planned to do a very big 'positive split', aiming for approx. 1:53/2:07. As it transpired, I went through half-way too fast in 1:50. So, I went to a walk/run strategy for the second half. I was still on course for a sub-4 finish until as late as 23 miles. However, during the last three miles, I had to deal with (a) cramping in a calf; (b) locking up for a while across the shoulders; and (c) the hill round mile 24/25 (too much for a treadmill runner lol). But thrilled nevertheless.

Will be pacing for 3hrs, so jump on the bus.
Stevce
A very good well run event. On the downside, it wasn't as flat as I thought it would be (but it certainly wasn't hilly, hilly !) one water station ran out of water (but did have sports drink)
very enjoyable, great course and highly recommendable

I was a first time runner and if all marathons are like this then I wish I could run a marathon every week !
Jono.
loved it!!!
