It was a really tough one for me but I did manage to finish the Rock 'n' Roll Liverpool Marathon. I was pretty worn out after walking around 700 miles in Shikoku Japan, which was a bit like running a marathon every day for about 5 weeks! Combined with serious jet lag from flying directly from Tokyo to London two days before the marathon, I was glad I had the energy to do it at all! The day before the race it poured rain and threatened to do it on race day too. But I got lucky and the rain didn't start until I reached mile 22. But the wind came along with it and by mile 25 I was in serious doubt about being able to finish. I was seriously cold. But one of the race helpers gave me a space blanket that I wrapped around me and that probably did save the day. I finished right at 7 hours and there were only two people who finished after me! But I was still 3rd in my age group. I was the oldest woman in the race too. I really must start speeding up or I am going to end up not finishing the races that I start. The circumstances were a bit unusual though so maybe things will improve.
Next race is Northwest Passage Marathon in July.
