Well done to all London marathon runners! I have to admit that it was harder that I would like and the few missed weeks of training did matter but I was also prepared for it so I was not stressing out when I had to take a walking break.
Overall I really enjoyed the race, the weather was runner-friendly, spectators were amazing and my head stayed in the right place throughout. My time was 4:53:45 so definitely nothing record breaking and a far cry from my marathon PB but very happy that I managed to finish without pain and blisters. I am already looking forward to the next race! Though I will give myself a week of complete rest before I take the body for a gentle jog again.
I’m not a fan of the finisher t-shirt or the medal though….and I was given a gender based deodorant in the goodie-bag again 😦
