Life after the London marathon

My targets for 2016 are exactly the same as those for 2015 but weren't acheived........A sub 4 hour marathon; a sub 23.27 5k or park run (Hollywood's current PB); and a sub 1:50 half.  

I'm doing two marathons this year: Manchester in April (did it in 4.13 last year); and Snowdon in October (did it in 5.01 last year).  I'm very excited about both.

Deciding to run my first London marathon in 2013; and being part of this site in the process has quite literally changed my life.  The confidence and pride it has created; the challenges that I've dared to set myself since; and the long term friendships and relationships that have developed are all very special.
