Anyone doing it on Saturday? Ive done the training with friends - telling them i was supporting them on their runs- but I've actually bought a place😨 And no one knows. Nervous as shit.

Well done black Awesome smile

BubblegumFactory Sat 28-Oct-17 22:23:06

Well done! I’m in awe, having only ever done a 1/2 Marathon. You must be super fit.

Blackandpurple Sun 29-Oct-17 07:15:32

Not super fit!

Do you know what? I saw every age, every size, people you think "they run?" And we all gave it a go!! That is what is important. Giving it a go.

So what is stopping you? Come up and to it! Awesome marshalls, some totally bonkers😂 Scenery is something else,and amazing support at the finish line where they call your name out to everyone!


AuntLydia Sun 29-Oct-17 07:17:29

Well done black! I did it too - my first ever marathon. I absolutely loved it, the support was incredible.

Blackandpurple Sun 29-Oct-17 07:36:47

Well done! Amazing eh?!

Will you do it again?

AuntLydia Sun 29-Oct-17 07:48:37

I think I will yes! Although I have a thing about never doing the same race twice so I don't need to worry about pbs. In 3 years of running I've never repeated a race. I may have to make an exception for this one though, it really was a fantastic experience. How about you?

Blackandpurple Sun 29-Oct-17 08:09:12

Im still buzzing. Sore but buzxing! Walk down the beach later, don't want to walk any hills😂

Being local i will do it again! I'm lucky as i know the route and i can train on it.

emummy Sun 29-Oct-17 09:52:55

Well done to you both, fantastic running! Blackandpurple what did people say when they found out you'd run it?! Wishing you a nice relaxing week!
