I did It!! London Marathon 2013: What An Amazing Experience.

I did It!! London Marathon 2013: What An Amazing Experience:

Today I cried!! When I left my husband at the train station to go to the start of the London Marathon.

 Also I cried when I was all alone at the start of the London Marathon.

 When I realised I was doing my first marathon.

 I started to cry when the marathon started.

I also did a big cried when children in the street wanted to high five me for running.

 I might have done a little cried when I got to 13 miles and my knees went.

 Then I cried when I realised I had to do another 13 miles with knee pain.

 So I cried when I had 2 miles to go.

Again I cried when I had 1 mile to go.

 I cried when I did it in 5 hours 12 mins approx.

 Also I cried when I met my family at the end.

 I have had a great day honest!! 

What it feels like when you run London Marathon, ha!!
