The tail of 20 miles and then 6

Well I did it!

Finished the marathon - crowds were fab, nah, AMAZiNG..... did fine till about 20miles then the wheels didn't just come off the truck the kinda blew up and flew off!!

I think it may have been the sub 9min mile I got from somewhere to 19miles... I remember feeling fine then... hummm... the heat I say.. it was the heat (like over 20 degrees which is ridiculous for April, wasn't even that hot all of last summer!)

So here's a picture of my Garmin download - bonk in all it's glory!

Full race report to come... I'll just leave you with this picture of my toe... believe me; it's just as well it's blurred....
All the fours.. time of 4:44... I'm happy, sore and tired! Race report owed!
