G? That's crazy - my friend who was also running put down 2hrs as her estimated time and she ended up in Zone E! Oh well, not much you can do I guess!
10th mile? Hmmm where was that...oh yeah no that wasn't too bad for me. It was kinda between 7 - 9 miles that killed me because I got the biggest stitch I'd ever had in my life. Was lucky because just before 9 miles there were some portaloos so I had to jump into one and let it relax off whilst doing some business
...that sorted me out quite good actually and set off again feeling much better
The best part is like the first 4 miles, they went so quick! It was insane! Then I started to get bored
Things I like:
-People giving out segments of oranges
-The finish line
Things I dislike:
-Charvers wanting everyone to give them a hi-five and screaming at you if you don't
-First Aid people putting HUGE chunks of vaseline on their hands so that if you don't want to stop and carefully take a small bit you have to take the whole chunk and figure out what to do with all the crap then deciding to just rub it around your hands, making the bottle of water that you then grab at a station slip OUT of your hands, grrr
-Being forced to do a warm up by some random dude in lycra, when he was actually behind me, and the screens were set up so that I couldn't see any of them!
Still, I loved it! Weather was awesome! Got a tan
