Thames Meander Marathon

This was a very enjoyable run along the Thames from the YMCA Hawker centre.  We started with a quick out-and-back down to Kingston, then a long out-and-back to Putney Bridge.  On the way to Putney there was plenty of pedestrian dodging involved, especially with a boat race on and spectators and rowers all along the tow path!

Great day, good weather and a good time (3:42:32 - my fourth fastest) for marathon #70.

Chelmsford Parks Marathon

Not bad for the first running of a marathon.  The start was delayed 15 minutes, but otherwise well organised.  Two and a bit laps through several parks and along mostly closed roads.

I ran a solid first half but then my pace tailed off over the second half.

This was marathon #69, completed in 3:47:02.
