Finished….. just

I finally have the energy to do a short blog post following my marathon attempt yesterday.

I can’t believe how hot it was. All the promise of light showers never came and I wearing black didn’t particularly help.

The first 13 miles where fine, but then by 15 miles I developed some really bad blisters, which when I finally removed my shoes once home, appeared to cover most of my feet.

Be warned, the following pictures are pretty disgusting.

I havent bothered showing you my sock and inside iof my shoe which is covered in blood…. but you get the picture.

Heel of left foot.. Ouch!!

Right foot...complete mess.. even more painful than the left!

Right foot...complete mess.. even more painful than the left! And how do I get a blister on top of another on the side?

What kept me going was the very encouranging emails and twitters from people (so thank you all) and the thought that I had to finish to raise the sponsorship.
So that means 4 London marathons entered, and 4 completed.
Time to retire?
