I DID IT :-D Dublin Marathon 2011

Hello Fudgey Friends,

Just a quick post to let you all know I'm now a 2 time Marathon finisher.
I completed the Dublin Marathon on Monday in 5 hours, 34 minutes & 17 seconds according to Mr Garmin.

I'll be back as soon as I can will a full race review but right now I'm trying to recover a little - it was a really tough day. My IT Band decided to start playing up at around 11 miles so I had run & then run / walk the last 15.5 miles (Garmin says 42.71 km / 26.54 miles) carrying an injury. I also got soaked to the skin in the torrential rain between miles 20 & 24 which I'm sure has developped the existing sore throat I had into a full blown cold.
Giving up was never an option though & I was so happy to receive my medal at the end - I feel I really earned this one.

Thank you to everyone for their Good Luck wishes & Well Done messages - it really means a lot to me.

Take Care Everyone
lots of love
