London Marathon

Race Reports

Hi all Croft members. Sorry I am late with the update, but was straight back to work on return from London.

After arriving at London early hours Saturday morning, we made our way to the EXBO. Seeing Paula Radcliffe was a big bonus to start the weekend off. Once we arrived at the Marathon start area, while waiting for family members to use the toilet, I heard a voice call my name and there was Claire and Sam. So we gathered our stuff together and said our goodbyes and made our way to the start as we were both in Blue-block 6.

Then away I went ready to cross the start line. The atmosphere was electric and second to none. I just kept my head down and kept to a steady pace, it was hard going when I reached the last 3 miles but I made it home in one piece. I would just like to say a massive thank you to the Club for the opportunity to take part in such a amazing event, I was truly overwhelmed so Thank you.
Finally my finish time was 4 Hours & 19 Minutes.
