Kingston Marathon, Surrey

Sun October 12 2003 Listed by paskha
1 Entrant Club PB SB Pred Time WAVA
paskha 18th marathon (incs Ultras) Travelled up overnight Friday cos it was the only train I could get an APEX, so I contacted an old school friend living near Oxford St- and visited her at 8:30am Sat!  I had also managed to speak to my little bro (born 1957) at the Royal Court where he works, on the previous Weds - I hadn't seen him for over 6 yrs - since 31st Aug 1997 .... we had arranged to meet in a Soho cafe at midday - but I didn't expect him to turn up, as he has made arrangements before to meet Mum & Dad / Annie - and he just doesn't appear.

At 12:15pm I was still rooted to the spot outside ... (not the Prima Vera - er, cant remember the name) when he arrived!!!  I spent 6 hrs with him, walking right along the South Bank to Tower Bridge where David Blaine was in his box ... not the best preparation for a marathon, but I didn't care, I was so pleased to have seen him (we were very close as teens / 20s in Cornwall, & socialising in same group)

I ran quite well to mile 21 - then just died - I was really tired - so PB not possible Mounts Bay Harriers 4:28:24 4:29:54 4:30:00 4:40:00 57.13
