I DID IT!! about 3.15, not bad for a first attempt for a bloke nearly 50 with 2 arthritic knees!

Well done.
Any further plans or was this a one-off?

My doctor advised me not to do this one but I went against his advice as I had raised too much money to pull out. I'll see how I feel once I get down to my weight target, I still have another 42 pounds to lose. My wife said she would love to run it with me in a couple of years!

It was a very hot day - for September! more committed runners than me were dropping like flies! they didn't prepare the way I did. As a regular first aider on the event, I had made a mental note of all the previous injuries I had dealt with and came up with plans enabling me to finish.

About the only thing missing to make that outfit complete is a set of fairy wings and tiara.



Congrats again man, it must feel great to have accomplished it.
