Cheers for all the messages!

I'm aching! yep, times are correct, and I'll also add that Shaun Tozer (Helston Ass. Man) did 2 hours 48 mins!!!

Up to 20 miles it was all going fine, the next 4 miles were the hardest thing I've ever encountered in my life, my legs wouldn't move and were barely going in front of each other, I walked for about a combined total of 2 minutes probably, and then ran the last 2 miles after gaining some energy from sweets and flapjack!!

A fantastic time though and an experience I could recommend to anyone!

And yes, it certainly is harder than it looks

Well done St Darren and hopefully you raised a good sum of money for your charity. That is a very good time for your first attempt at a marathon.

Was an amazing experience and one I'll never forget, I didn't stop smiling for the first 20 miles! and then bang!! some bugger built a big wall!! took me about 70 minutes to run the last 6 miles.

Slapping hands with kids standing on the side of the road, hearing people shout your name with encouragement is one hell of a feeling.

How am I feeling now? my ankle is killing me and I've got pain in behind my left knee, no blisters though. Walking on and off of trains yesterday was funny as anything with Wellsy and myself barely able to move.

Will I do it again?? definitely, one more time I think, whether that will be next year or the year after, I don't know, but I want to crack the four hour mark
