Eden Marathon and Half Marathon 2019

Wow what a great day out at Eden’s Half Marathon on Sunday.
Lashing rain as we queued waiting for the gunshot and we’re off. 13 miles of wet lanes, very muddy footpaths, squelching sodden feet attached to aching legs and tormented bodies. Runners with big smiles, runners with no expressions, runners in pain, but runners doing what they do. Support was amazing and popping up in the most unexpected places and always a pleasure to see. Friendly marshals and water stations. Mountain rescue and a halfway hug x.
For those who follow our exploits it’s 8 .2 in the bragging rights with Nic well to the fore. PB’s for us both and touch wood I am finishing races in good condition.
Thank you for reading and huge thanks to all involved in competing, marshalling, supporting, and finally the organisers. Thank you
