The event was based at Crookham Common Athletics Track with 105 laps of the newly built track. This was the first time I have been on a sports track since school - great experience and a great event.
The event was won by the American Michael Arnstein (2:32:49) and Natasha Doyle (3:28:19). Well done!
I incorporated this marathon as part of my training week so didn't push myself too hard, and rolled in at 3rd place with a time of 2.49. I felt fresh enough to carry on with my training for the rest of the weekend so it proved to be worth doing - adding to the weekly mileage and general experience.
And finally, thanks to my little boy Neel for supplying me with water and food and Anjali for being a great lap counter and added support xx
