The negative split

Writing about web page http://www.justgiving.com/cath

Just being a part of the biggest road race in the world is an experience… this was my 4th with a dream plan of ‘good for age’ time (3hr 45mins) however the sheer congestion on route meant that after a ridiculously steady start settled for soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying it!! Best I’ve ever felt on route and although mile 25 was a touch painful the sight of Big Ben with the promise of The Mall (finish) just kept the ‘put one foot in front of the other’ mantra going.
