I ran a marathon

I did it! I ran a marathon!
Right now I am way too tired and aching and confused and emotional to write a proper blog post, but I did it. It was amazing for the first 19 miles, then it was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life.

But I did it, AND and I hit my goal of under 4:30 (although my time did include over 5 minutes queuing for the toilet at mile 12...).

Everything hurts. My toes (seven blisters), my back, my quads, my hips, my calves, my head. I am aching so much that I'm a little bit scared of how I'm going to feel tomorrow. Thankfully I'm not in work til Thursday as Phil is taking me away tomorrow - I cannot wait for that spa day he has booked!
Proper blog post to come - I've been keeping a log for over 6 months of "things nobody tells you about running a marathon" and I can't wait to share. But for now it's rest, ibuprofen, sleeping and pizza,

Thanks to all of you for your support.

Charlotte xxxx
