Hello everyone!
First, thank you all for the support. I've been struck by the sheer depth and breadth of support for my marathon. Genuinely now I wouldn't have finished without knowing you were on the course, tracking me, watching tv, or wondering how it was going. 🤧There were times toward the end where the heat and pain would have finished me, but I didn't let it because of you all!!!
Also thank you for the totally amazing levels of donations for my chosen charity the Welsh air ambulance- I'm on my way to raising close to £1000 for this worthy cause. Again, without that I would not have finished.
The run itself was tough. I'm not a road runner! The weather was also hot!! The first half was ok, the second my feet started to hurt in a way I hadn't prepared for- under my small toes!! The pain just kept getting worse and worse. My pace slowed badly and I saw the pacer for my wanted time jog past and there was nothing I could do!
