A journey back to Middle Earth…

8 years after my first attempt in Dublin and my third attempt after London in 2008, I achieved my personal goal of a sub 4 hr marathon, wiping almost 20 mins off my previous PB. The conditions in Berlin yesterday were perfect, confirmed by the new world record of 2:03.23 achieved by Wilson Kipsang of Kenya.
I raised £1000 for the mental health charity Mind and in addition it was done true “Forrest Gump” style! (The haircut is booked for Wed and the general consensus seems to be that the beard also needs to go!)
Not sure if it was the “brutal” training programme, the fresh air we been having living out of a campervan, or the chicken satay the night before, (whilst not threatening any record setting times), its great to have broken my own personal physical and mental barrier. – Impossible is nothing!
