And the day dawned overcast, cold, and still.
As good a day as any to run a marathon.
I approached the start line with left achilles and right knee strapped up, very nervous I wouldn't make it.
The first 4 1/2 miles were agony - right leg unstable and very tight.
Changed my style and managed to get into a rhythm at around 6 miles thinking that I'd go for it until it all fell apart and then walk in.
It didn't so I rolled in at 4.25 - best yet and probably won't be surpassed as it took a lot out of me.
Adam astonishingly broke the record again with 2.57 and everyone else did about as usual.
Off out for tea tonight and then physio and bed.
