Following the weeks of gruelling training, the big day came and I managed to complete the distance. Found it very hard going but can honestly say that all the encouragement and donations received helped me stagger on to the end.
I hit the infamous wall at 17 ish miles and was reduced to a controlled stumble thereafter. Therefore a slow slow time (5.27) but one that I hope to improve upon should I try another one. Trying a more sensible half marathon in September so I can't have been too traumatized!
Thanks again to those who donated to a worthy cause. If you didn't, it's not too late! The site will be open for another few weeks.
