And the day dawned dull, rainy and overcast.
As good a day as any to run a marathon.
I've made it - YES YES YES!!!!
Not much left in the tank today - so finished with a 4.08 - yes that is 4.08!!!!
Fastest of the 10 by over 8 minutes.
I reckon if I carried on running one a day until Christmas I'd beat the world record!
Adam broke the record again with a 2.56, Anna is the new women's world record holder and everyone completed. A very very emotional day from start to finish, followed by prize giving etc etc.
Thanks also to Stewart Taylor who not only followed my blog throughout all the training phase, but who unexpectedly turned up on the course today and set my pace for me for a couple of miles.
I will do a final blog tomorrow evening when I get home - but for now so many many thanks to all my followers and for all the messages and all the money you have donated to what is a great cause as anyone who has been here will tell you.
And now for a small beer - or two!
