The atmosphere was electric and also with music/bands at various points on the circuit. When I felt a lull, the music really did lift my adrenalin and another short burst before my puff needed to be resumed.
You know I am in awe of my friends and those who can run for miles and miles and don't need to stop to breathe. What does that feel like to do this? What does it feel like to run and run and run and keep running and not struggle? I know it's daft I'm just wanting to be able to run a mile non-stop, this still hasn't happened...I will NOT give up and keep trying. Just, I never know from one day to the next how I will be. I am NOT a quitter and will live in hope :)
There were 11,839 runners on the day......find out later where I finished any guesses?
So.......I ended up from 11,839 runners coming in as position 11,807 being 32nd from last in 1 hour 26 minutes and 06 seconds!! I was happy with that, and it averages out as 17.2 minutes per mile. One EBC chap did his run in 33 minutes (Pete) truly amazing!!!! WOW!! A great day and thanks also to my parents being there too to watch.
