Wheeee 🙂 I kept my NYE resolution and did beat my PB in the London marathon by 20 minutes and finished in 4.27.55. Unfortunately I did not reach my dream target of sub 4 hour marathon, I was on my way to do it and halfway through it was possible and it felt great but then injury set in, injured both ITB bands in my legs and continuing in speed was impossible. Maybe I’m not made for really long runs but have decided to try again, must run under 3.40 to qualify for Boston marathon.
Anyways had a really nice weekend, was joined by my partner in crime Anders who also ran in this years marathon, though a hell of a lot faster than me. Well done for getting me to the start in one piece and congrats to your brilliant marathon time.
Thanks to Stina’s help my marathon outfit is now complete. The t-shirt colour is not my choices but I think the turqouise works quite good with orange. So know you how I will look so you can keep an eye open if you are watching the race on TV (BBC2 and then later BBC1) or in real life.
A few friends of mine will watch the marathon from the Old Rose Pub near Shadwell station, map. There you should be able to see me twice, at mile 13.73ish running towards Canary Wharf and then at mile 22.83ish running towards the tower. To check out the course Virgins interactive map is quite good, interactive marathon map.
Or you can join my charity Lepra and cheer for me at mile 23 just by the Tower of London, usually great atmosphere here.
In case you can’t watch the marathon in real life or on TV then you can follow me here Facebook Marathon Tracker by typing in my running number 15152. Have not found an non Facebook online tracker website yet but I hope there will be on and will publish the address here if I find one.
Also there is still time to sponsor my marathon on my website http://www.justgiving.com/Running-Eva
