Scuse the drowned rat impression, though I did have my own personal umbrella holder after the finish ( pity ds couldn’t have kept up with me all the way round😂) I’m sure the Royal Parks are beautiful on a proper autumnal day- such a shame because there’s alot of great organisation gone into this event. Lots of sightseeing on the way round and running down the Mall is a tingly moment! The crowds were amazing- I’d forgotten what its like to run through walls of sound and my arm aches from waving to everyone who shouted my name, such a boost.
So, from starting C25K 12 and a half months ago to a HM, with an achilles injury putting paid to 4 weeks peak HM training in the middle! I couldn’t have done any of it without the wise words and support of this forum. How on earth did I run for 2hrs 30mins and ( a pesky annoying )4s? Absolutely chuffed!
