We did it!

We did it!

The report will follow. Enough for now to say that my boy ran a 3 hour 4 minute marathon and I did a sub two hour 10 miles (1.59 since you ask). My optimistic target was 2 hours 10 minutes. Still haven't come down to earth. Thank you C2 5Kers so much for convincing me that I could actually run this far just two years after I first laced up a pair of running shoes. Apparently you were right!

Wow, great times for both of you. Not sure what is most impressive - 3 hours for a marathon is absolutely amazing. But 10'miles in two hours at your age (sorry) is fantastic as well. Huge congratulations to you both.

That's really great TT, such a wonderful achievement :-) Do you think you will be doing a hm next?!

I think that's the sensible next step Mimsickle. Then we'll see if a marathon is out of the question. But I do seem to have got to a place where I can cope with a long steady run much better than a fast and furious 5K!
