Couldn’t make it to McGrattan’s, I was in ribbons and a bit lost!

Could barely walk afterwards but coming around now, got in just before 4:30, delighted!

All went a pearshapee for myself. Everything was good my grand and I was bang on my strategy. Hit 32K and suddenly the lower inside of my tighs - just a little above the knee. Who knows what they are called. Anyway, they started to seize up. Never in all of training have I had an issue with them. Had to slow and then walk to try to sort it out. At that, having to stop did take the wind out of the sails a little. Kept it moving and going and tried to motor on but the issue kept returning as I tried to keep up to pace. Just tested a little to ensure a final push to the line.

Bittersweet. I hate stopping. It annoys me. However I was into the unknown. An issue I never had decided to throw a curveball. Couldn’t see that coming up. I finished it in 4:11. I finished it. That’s the main thing. I actually got emotional on that final fling. Stifled back the tears. Didn’t expect that.

Felt frigid after. Was walking like a mummy through the finish area. Met my wife and sister and came home with them. Did have a little scare on the Luas. Crowded as heck. I was standing. Felt unwell. Was about to hop did when I went over for a brief second. Admittedly, felt better after! Home now and in a bath of Epsom salts.

While I’m disappointed about that last 10K, I am incredibly proud to have made the finish. Will I ever do one again? At the moment I have zero appetite to do so. Few lessons to be learned for sure. But for now, I’m content. An incredible achievement to just commit and finish the thing. Bucket list item checked off.

Very respectable time in fairness. Last 10k is tough. Nothing like that last 1km. Don’t know where I got the strength to sprint it. Loved it but it was tough.

Well done to all. Super achievement. Now, will you go again next year?
