The one where I run my first marathon
I did it!!! I ran a marathon!!
It took me 4 hours, 30 minutes and 9 seconds … if I had known I was so close to being sub 4:30 I would have pushed a bit harder. But it was way under my five hour target so for once I am pleased with how I ran.
Today my legs ache, stairs are an issue, I can’t stop eating and I just want to have a nap … but I am still smiling. And every time I get asked how I got on I can remind myself of the brilliant (but sometimes painful) time I had yesterday. 13 days to go until I do it all again!!!
