Shrewsbury Marathon & Half Marathon
Sunday 23rd June 2013

I tried so hard to kid myself that the inaugural Shrewsbury marathon route could really be flat ... that they didn't just miss a tick box on the RunnersWorld profile ... that they had sympathy for visiting flatlanders ... that a VLM Good For Age ticket may be possible ... I knew in my heart it couldn't be true. I quite like lapped courses but this one, knowing that three more sets of those verticals (in Cantabrigian-speak) were coming atcha was tough but I guess it did bring out the fight in me. And despite there being a few teething problems in the organisation, I'm impressed by how they got the whole town on board with road closures, support and music etc and I reckon next year's will be a cracker worth going to. They have a Half as well. And I literally sobbed my way over the finish line in a time I'm amazed at 3:45:09 (chip) so all good.
