    Yes, I did it! Sunday was hot, painful and the best day of my life. I have achieved the ambition of a lifetime and finished in a respectable 4hrs 24mins. It was really hard going but just an amazing day.
    Less than three years ago I was a 23 stone, morbidly obsese, in constant pain and struggled to get out of bed.
    And now I'm a marathon runner. Thank you LL!!

    What a fantastic time too! You stormed round! I did my half marathon in 2 hours 45 so I'm blown away that you could do twice at your pace! Congrats!
