WE DID IT!!
Yes, 6 hours and 25 minutes (and 35 seconds - makes all the difference!) after crossing the start line last Sunday I crossed the finish line with a mixture of wonder, elation and extremely painful blisters!
I had hoped for a quicker time but on the day the heat, the long journey up from Cornwall and the sheer excitement got the better of me at 12 miles - however I rallied at 16 miles and finished running, almost sprinting to the finishing line! Anyway, I have always believed that the essence of the marathon is to fight against adversity and just get through, no matter how long it takes! (That, and overtaking Jordan along the way!!)
It was a day I will always remember and your unfailing support and that of complete strangers along the way has been unvaluable to me. Thank you to everyone who took time to encourage me with my running and many fundraising events both before and after the Big Day!
So a really big THANK YOU on behalf of me and FLEET - THANK YOU!
