THE LONDON MARATHON 2019
Ready or not here we come ???♀️?♂️ #LondonMarathon2019
Yesterday at the finish. Utter relief and a fair bit of elation. Very happy with my time; just dipped under 3.45hrs and also that I’ve raised almost £500 for Guide Dogs UK
I blooming did it! What an experience!! I loved it. London you didn’t disappoint. 4 hours 15min 39sec. Pretty happy with my pacing as well. Thank you to everyone who has sponsored me, sent me well wishes, come on long training runs with me (Vikki Harper ?). And to the fabulous canary crew for the support today. Also thanks to the old man (Matthew Pountain) for his consistent love and support. This ones for you my darling daddy xx ❤️
So my hip went at 16 miles and the last 10 we’re slow and painful but I did it! #
Wow! What a rollercoaster of a journey this has been.. so many tears, so many injuries, so much pasta and so many miles! But it was so worth it! Virgin London Marathon 2019 was an incredible experience that I will never forget, I can imagine I’ll still be buzzing from this for the next week or so and it honestly is a feeling like no other, especially because I’m also in a world of pain right about now haha… Thank you to my family and friends who came to support me yesterday, you kept me going and was such a massive lift to see you throughout the course! It made my heart so happy! I also want to thank everyone who donated to Mind charity, the money is going to do some wonderful things for people who need it most and it’s a great feeling to know that we’ve contributed to this! It is so overwhelmingly positive to witness how many amazing people there are in this world and yesterday was definitely a celebration of that! Congratulations to all those runners yesterday, you did yourselves proud!
