Edinburgh Marathon 2014

This time last year, I signed up for the Edinburgh Marathon and began to put together a training plan that would get me across the finish line.

I started training seriously for it in December 2013 and, six months later, I crossed the line in a time of 3h 57m 32s. Not record-breaking, but not bad for a first time effort.

I can’t say that I enjoyed every minute of it, I don’t think I’ll run the Edinburgh Marathon again, and for the time being, I’m putting my marathon-running shoes into retirement. 10ks and half-marathons are where it’s at.
