Paris marathon


I ran the Paris marathon to make sure i had that box ticked before i reach 25.

Thanks for donating to hoveraid if you did, which im sure will be put to good use having talked to a hoveraid pilot. I came in 30,159th with a time of 4:42. I now have much greater respect for people wearing stupid costumes in marathons! http://www.camracing.co.uk/paris-marathon Pete

The conditions on the day were ideal, but my foot wasnt in great shape after the last training run i did. I filled up with ibuprofen and the first 9 miles went pretty good, hitting about the pace i needed for 4 hours with some to spare.

At about 9 miles my eyes and throat swelled up a bit like i was having some sort of allergic reaction, possibly to the painkillers, so i walked and slowly jogged a bit and it cleared up.

The final 6 miles i was spent and my foot was very painful so i was walking half a mile then running the next. I can safely say that im not addicted to marathon running as happens to some people, however i will have to do another one slightly better prepared and without an injury so i can smash that 4 hour mark, or even 3:45.
