London Marathon 2018

Since my first marathon in hull in 2012 yes that short one my dream has always been to run a sub 2:30 marathon, since then and a lot of miles under the bridge and once again came up short in Manchester 2016 I was beginning to think this may never happen.

London marathon blog – month 4

Monday was a complete right off as I far to hungover to function so it was straight in to Champagne League on Tuesday night, having missed last year due to injury I’m hoping to do all 10 races this year along with the Summer league as I really enjoy Tuesday night racing. First CL race is at the Humber Bridge country park for an out & back which is just short of 4 miles.

Winter League

Darren White has persuaded me, reluctantly I might add, to write something for the newsletter as the Ladies Winter League winner.  The problem is what can I say, I certainly didn’t expect to win it but on the other hand I’m absolutely delighted.  It wasen’t until the last two races that I thought I might be in with a chance of being in the top three, so I decided to give it my all and with the help of the handicapper who might have been a little kind to me with one or two of the races, or did I just have good runs(?) not sure, I managed to pull it off.

A Baking Hot London Marathon Weekend

Arrival in London begins with a visit to the Excel centre to collect my number and chip.  I also pay a visit to the Hull Marathon stall and have a chat with Lucas and do a video clip. Then it is back to central London to meet my wife but I’m running late. The train finishes at Tower Bridge so I leave the station to text my wife. Then disaster I have still got my suitcase and rucksack but no running bag, chip or number. Panic my marathon is over already.

Manchester Marathon 8th April 2018

Having been rejected for the London Marathon this year I decided to tackle Manchester marathon as quite a lot of Harriers had done it and enjoyed it. Spurred on by the fact that a good for age was possible. I had to beat last years’ time by 8 minutes to do so, so training started in January.
