Flashback Friday : London Marathon 2013..

It was nearly 2 years ago when I ran my first marathon. London Marathon in April 2013.

Nothing much as changed since then. I still eat to much sugar and don’t run as much as I should do!!

Eek trying to change things now though! My first marathon I cried a lot. My second a little. This year I will be watching from the sofa as I was not lucky this year to get a place. Or maybe I was lucky as I did not have to train up,lol..


How much did I cry? 

This much!!

Have you ran a marathon?

Did you cry after a race?

    I hadnt done marathon yet but I am planning to! Next year hopefully. I started running again this week but I only did once as my legs are killing me. I think I overdid it but I will go back hopefully tonight or tomorrow. I so envy you for doing this. I can only do 3 mile and I am dying already! I can only imagine how long I'd do 26 =) #pocolo

      Thanks 🙂 Aww you are doing great getting out and running. You will love a marathon and you have plenty of time to train up for it 🙂

    Oh we've just been through marathon training (the other side though with the husband) and its been an incredible journey to watch!! He said the same, he nearly cried at 25km when he realised he still had another 17 to go!! Well done though on the 2 marathons and spectator is much more enjoyable 🙂 #PoCoLo

    I have never done a marathon! So I really wouldn't know. Fair play to you for doing one though! Enjoy watching it from the comfort of home this year and thank you for linking to #PoCoLo x

    I enjoy running across the moors to get away from my screen for a while but I've never run a marathon, so impressed you've done 2! It's a shame you didn't get in this year, it just gives you a year off before you have another go I guess! Popping in from Magic Moments.

    I think you are pretty amazing to have done it once, let alone more than once! I have absolutely no plans to be doing a marathon!#MagicMoments
