Dear friends, colleagues and business associates, I appreciate you taking time to read this post.
On the 10th of April 2016 I managed to complete the Manchester Marathon, I registered with an outside time of 6 hours to finish but shocked myself in completing the run in 4 hours 58 minutes. I hit the WALL at 18 miles walked 2 miles then force marched (that's an army thing) 4 miles, got a second wind then ran the last 4 miles to the finish line.
The marathon organizers and public put on a great day which helped to distract from the pain.
Over the course of 3 months I trained hard running over 300 miles in preparation to build my stamina.
