And we're off...

And the day dawned a bit blustery but no real rain and some sun. As good a day as any to run a marathon.

First one down. Around 4.40 to 4.45 so exactly where I thought number one would be. But more difficult than I thought so I think number 2 may well take longer.
I think we all got through just about unscathed. Phil had a few problems with tendonitis so I was surprised to catch him up, but the physios have patched him up.
Adam did an astonishing 2.58 - the record is on. Joss Naylor was encouraging him to go for sub 3.00hr average!!
Won't write long and if I miss on future nights it's because the connection is terrible.
So off to dinner now and then a massage.
Number 1 done - a bit tired but no injuries.
