Just back from the big apple! 26.2 miles done! Many thanks to all the folks at Media Lightbox for their generosity and kind words of support for this year’s New York Marathon which I finished last Sunday November 1, 2009.
Overall it was a great run despite the injury worries in the weeks prior to it!
My injury struck left leg went at mile 3..I thought it was over before it had begun, it was the worst start possible!..self talk, digging deep and 2 nurofen (brufen but a bit stronger)and a tight strap on it allowed me to run on slowly…was feeling good again at mile 8 but kept a steady pace of 12 for rest of run as didnt want to push it (had intended to run at 10.5 pm) – last 2 miles were an 11 and a 10 so finished stronger than i started – delighted to finish and what a run it is! Unreal! Crowds amazing! Was a bit sore two days after but totally fine now!
