And the day dawned sunny but became cold with a heavy hail storm - nice!
As good a day as any to run a marathon.
The day started with a nice surprise - the smiling face of Mr David Grey at the start! David stopped at every drink station for me and several of the other runners as well. And was there at Brathay at the end. A wonderful supporting effort - hope you enjoyed the day as well and a huge thanks.
A couple of tough runs today for Aly and Phil - around 7 hours I think due to injury. I'm sure they will be at the start tomorrow though and we're all hoping so. Michelle seems to be extraordinarily consistent even with injury issues.
Inspite of the 500 horses in David's Jaguar he still couldn't catch Adam - under 3 hours again! Amazingly consistent performances from Foxy, Dave W, Steve and Ray who's getting faster every day. Also Anna and Naomi still going well. Naomi has wonderful family support on route every day who support us as well. They also fuel her with Greggs pasties!
For me it felt harder today - purely energy wise (or lack thereof) so was delighted to roll home in 4.27 just ahead of Jim.
