Marathons for 2016 – 19 and out

Sunday marked my final marathon for 2016.  Struggled a little at the Enigma Christmas marathon around Caldecotte but held it together for a 3:36 to finish the year back at the venue I started.

Managed 19 marathons or longer for the year.  My first 38 miler at Bewl Water and my first 50 miler at Chiltern Wonderland 50.

Of the 17 marathons I managed to bag a surprise 3:15 in March but never quite got the same form back for rest of the year.  Even including my miserable performance at Bournemouth (when I decided to run the half first and scraped around in 4:51) the average for the year is 3:35 so happy with the overall improvement.  I also managed to win two marathons outright but more due to low numbers and faster runners pulling out rather than any skill on my part.

Now sitting at 86 official marathons and 1 charity event that doesn’t count for 100 Marathon purposes.  Countdown is on for 100th in September.
