To add to Anne's summary of the London Marathon this year, it was a great event and I was glad to have one of the club places and experience it for myself.
It turned out to be almost perfect weather on the day, with the toilet queues fractionally shorter than the race distance. The start was very busy, taking about 20 minutes to clear the first 2 miles, but it stretched out a bit after that. After giving up on catching the Kenyans, I settled down into my planned pace until the last few miles when the occasion, or possibly the previous 21 miles, started to get the better of me. In the end I was 69 seconds over my target, but not going to complain about that - Especially with the surprise that welcomed me after the race (pic hopefully attached).
