Sometimes do you think that the world is against you?
I wanted to do 12 marathons this year then the last one gets cancelled.
I find a last minute replacement and then come down with a cold and a sore throat.
I wasn’t going to be beaten and drove down to Milton Keynes anyway to do the Christmas Enigma Marathon, which consisted of 7 laps of a lake.
The weather was better than of late, calm with no snow but still very cold only getting up to 3 degrees.
Things were still not going to well for me with a cold and a sore throat so race preparation consisted of Strepsils and Lucosade!
During the race I didn’t have my usual levels of energy, probably due to the cold and sore throat. I ended up running a fairly slow time of 3 hours 56 minutes and 33secs. I came in 10th place out of 34 runners.
I’m not at all bothered about the time it was just good to complete a dozen marathons in one year.
I’m looking forward to completing even more next year.
I wonder how many I will manage?
