On Running The Marathon

“The first half felt quite slow and then suddenly I felt awful … People hard warned me that after 18 miles your legs will suddenly feel terrible and they were right … I know I have a lot to learn but hopefully I can build from here. I found it hard to judge what pace I would be able to sustain … I’ve learned so much from it”

Sentiments shared and perhaps expressed by many of the 37,000 marathon finishers on Sunday.

These words, though, were uttered by Jo Pavey who finished in 2:28:24, finishing 19th.
