I did it! I ran the London Marathon!

Three years ago I was probably the most unlikely person in the world to run a marathon, though I might have broken to into a jog to get to the off licence at closing time. Then I met with MoodSwings kicked the booze and started doing parkrun. I accidentally won a place on the London Marathon through parkrun, and trained to get from my normal 5K (3 miles) up to the 26.2 miles that is a marathon is 10 weeks.

I finished in 4 hours, 13 minutes and 30 seconds. Everything hurts, I can't get upstairs and the majority of my toe nails are falling off.
