Gera, that was so nice of you to check the list and to let us know, as we're all thinking about him this weekend. Thank you. And CONGRATUATIONS, TONY! I love feeling like I was a "witness" to someone's huge goal they set for themselves, hear from them from the very beginning, all along the way, getting better and better, overcoming obstacles like bloddy nipples and foot sores! and then "watching" him achieve that goal. Thanks for letting us come along for your journey, Tony. You are an inspiration.

Hey guys, I think Tony is probably a bit disappointed because he came in an hour over his planned time (max 3hr 30 min). So something went wrong on the day.

Nonetheless he has finished the race, and it may have been a real battle. So congrats on "going the distance" champ 8)

Looking forward to hearing your report!

HI EVERYONE :)

THANKS FOR THE MESSAGES, AND YES DARREN I AM A LITTLE DISSAPOINTED :( , WELL A LOT ACTUALLY :crying: ....IF YOU LOOK AT THE TIMES

TIMES
5 km 0:27:29
10 km 0:53:12
15 km 1:20:37
20 km 1:50:42
half 1:57:01
25 km 2:20:42
30 km 2:54:29
35 km 3:32:06
40 km 4:18:05
finish 4:32:38

UP TO HALF DISTANCE 13.1 MILES EVERYTHING WAS GOING GREAT :D ....MY PLAN WAS TO DO THE FIRST HALF MARATHON IN 1HOUR 50 MINUTES..SO WAS 7 MINUTES OUT THERE AND THEN RALLY THE SECOND HALF IN UNDER 1 HOUR 40 ( A NEGATIVE SPLIT) TO FINISH UNDER 3 HOURS 30 AND IF ALL FEELING WELL PUSH THE 3 HOUR 15 BARRIER......

THAT WAS THE PLAN....WELL I SAT BEHIND THE WOMAN CLUB RUNNER, REMEMBER HER(2 PLUMS IN A HANKERCHIEF) :lol: ...AND OFF WE WENT THE ONLY PROBLEM SHE WAS NOT AN 8 MINUTE MILER SHE WAS A 10 MINUTE MILER AND I HAD GOT BEHIND THE WRONG RUNNER SO THE FIRST 3 MILES WAS DONE IN 27 MINUTES.....IT WAS CROWDED AT THE START AS WELL.....

THEN IF YOU LOOK AT THE 30K AND 35 K TIMES I WAS RUNNING 11 MINUTE MILES...IT WAS AT THIS POINT THAT THE WALL HIT...THE TIME AT 35K IS THE TIME THAT I WANTED TO FINISH IN BUT STILL HAD 6 MILES TO GO :roll:

IT TOOK ME 40 MINUTES TO TRAVEL 5K...BETWEEN THE 18 AND 23 MILE POINTS I WAS WALKING AND RUNNING, WELL HOBBLING ACTUALLY...I PROBABLY RAN A DISTANCE OF 2 MILES IN THAT 5 AND WALKED 3....I THEN PICKED IT UP AND RAN THE LAST 3 MILES....LEAVING AN HOUR TO FINISH 7K :crying: ......

ALL I CAN DO IS TAKE GREAT DELIGHT IN FINISHING 2,800 FOR MAN OF MY AGE AND THE MONEY RAISED FOR ZOES HOSPICE .....HAVE BEEN IN AGONY SINCE THE MARATHON HAD 3 BATHS A DAY BUT LEGS STILL TENSE UP, BUT TODAY IT IS BACK TO WORK

Tony, sorry to see your plans didn't come together on the day. Are you going to recoup, reassess your gameplan and come back next year? Did you ever feel like calling it quits before the finish line? What kept you going?

Oh, and what happened to Buster?

HI DARREN,

WILL NOT RUN FOR A MONTH NOW TO GET OVER IT AND REFRESH SELF, YES SURE DID FEEL LIKE CALLING IT QUITS, AND THING THAT KEPT ME GOING WAS THE BABIES AND PEOPLE WHO SPONSORED ME......ALSO THE PEOPLE AROUND ME, THE PAIN ON THEIR FACES, LIKE MINE, AND WHO THEY WERE RUNNING FOR..."THIS IS FOR MY NAN".."CHILDHOOD CANCERS"....ETC,ETC

I AM GETTING ON A BIT NOW, AND I AM THINKING OF RUNNING SHORTER DISTANCES,HALF MARATHON, AND GETTING TIMES DOWN ON THAT..BUT THE MARATHON IS THE ULTIMATE ENDURANCE RACE AND THE THOUGHT OF NOT DOING THAT AGAIN IS SAD :( ....

I DONT KNOW ABOUT BUSTER DARREN, BUT THERE WERE NO FATALITIES (THANK GOD), THOUGH 40 PEOPLE WERE TAKEN TO HOSPITAL :(
