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.
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.
