So. I made it round the Marathon yesterday. It rained virtually all day which would have been alright if I was running but I had to walk after about 8 miles.
I picked up a knee injury about a month ago but didn't want to withdraw as I couldn't be bothered to do all the training again and I was running it with a friend.
I'd done no training at all in the last month but it's weird how the fitness stays with you - I was fine at 8 miles except for my knee seizing up. This left 18 miles of limping round London in the wet - the least fun I've had in a while, although the crowds were fantastic. Incredible atmosphere.
Anyway, I made it and I'm alive! Well done to any other DiS readers who did the Marathon and thanks so much if you sponsored me!
