London Marathon – Part 1
Stuart Read 2:57:51
I’ve been very fortunate to get into the London marathon twice through the public ballot (feel free to punch me), with the last time being in 2008. At that time, I was in my late twenties and thought I could get away without training much. I certainly got what was due to me in last 6 miles of that race. This time it was going to be different and I felt confident I could get a big PB on my 4.18 time.
With a fairly solid bulk of training over winter and a couple of good marathon paced long runs behind me I was feeling confident heading into a three week taper.
