Runner's World (UK) - - Human Race -

‘First marathon – amaz­ing and aw­ful in equal mea­sure. Car­ried by the crowds.’ – @em­maaldrich ‘Felt more like a street party than a race. Can’t wait for my next one!’ – @chloe­geoghe­gan ‘Started well, faded badly but still squeaked a PB!’ – @smeck­osaurus ‘Never again. When does the bal­lot open?’ – Tony Gen­try ‘Tim­ing chip mal­func­tioned. Not happy!’ – Deb­bie Evans ‘The nois­i­est, busiest, most painful, dif­fi­cult, yet fun, friendly, re­ward­ing and sat­is­fy­ing few hours ever.’ – Jonathan Raine ‘I mar­shalled. Truly amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to be a small part of a big day.’ – Lucy Wilkin­son ‘Beaten by [James] Crack­nell but just pipped the fastest car­rot.’ – Rus­sell Whit­ting­ton ‘I paced it wrong again.’ – Ian Gower ‘2:59:58 – sprint fin­ish!’ – Vic­tor Hearn-yeates
