Well I done it !!!!!!! 26.2 miles, well I actually ran 27 somehow in about 5 and a half hours, ignoring the queuing for toilets - I wish I was a bloke, much easier! (Official time 5.43). it was the hardest thing i have ever done but I absolutely loved it! Fabulous atmosphere. My highlights were running over Tower Bridge at about half way and the last mile along the Thames. spotting Big Ben and then up the Mall to the finish. Would I do it again? No, it was a once in a lifetime experience for me but I do recommend it to everyone, it was a day I will never forget!
Great South Run done and challenge complete! With the hangover from my birthday still lurking i completed it in a steady 1 hr 49 mins! Not my fastest time but a great race with lots of friends supporting on the way!
Congratulations to the other members of my family who joined in: my brother Gareth (1 hr 11mins), My brother Jason (1hr 16mins) and my amazing Mum (3hr 7mins)!
Thankyou very much to all my sponsors.
