Great North Run - Abhi conquers Newcastle

Another Marathon under my belt. First in the UK. 1:55 the time. Almost 1/2 hr than my aspirational time. 10 minutes more than PB.
But, with no training for more than last 3 weeks, it was going to be more perspiration than aspiration. Aspiration my ass!

Newcastle is not plain sailing anyway. Wavy roads, down, up, up, up, down. My legs have been battered. They have turned to both stone (as in can't move) and jelly (when I do, they wobble). No dead nails though.

Raised 100 pounds in charity (exact!). So, all not lost! Donate more here
Here's how it went. Good that its gone. Next year, want to be back though. 1:30. Here I come.
