I did it!
My brain is a bit broken now, so this will be mercifully short, but I bloody did it!
4hrs 50mins 42secs… I’m so so happy with that.
I AM one of those annoying people who says they’re going to fail exams and then ends up doing pretty well, but I had no idea I was an extra annoying person who says they’re going to take 7 hours to run 26.2 miles and then does it much faster.
The first half was a bit like that dream I had a few nights ago – absolutely fine. The second half was the worst pain I’ve ever experienced and it went on for ages.
The most important thing: I didn’t poo myself (yesssss!).
I think I’ll quit while I’m ahead.
