The London Marathon – The Final Countdown

The training miles have been run, the wet weather has been endured, the carbs have been loaded and the number collected from the London Marathon Expo. All that remains is the small matter of tomorrow’s 26.2 miles, well probably a mile or so extra as the ‘thin blue line’ is rarely seen and a lot of extra distance covered getting around runners slowing down in the last 5 or 6 miles.

If going away for a few days before a big race, most runners would head for a break in the sun, with the last few easy runs in vest and shorts by a warm beach. So this week’s trip to Iceland wouldn’t be in the plans for many of the other 36,000 runners – but it was a fantastic stay which included a couple of runs in winter kit along the beautiful sea front in Reykjavik.

      Thanks – it was hard going today, finished in 3:48, a bit slower than I had hoped, will do a post on it when I have collected my thoughts a bit more.
