Gary Lowe, and I, ran the Leicester Marathon on Sunday October 9th. Starting together it was our intention of finishing together. It was decided at mile 14 that I should run on. Reluctantly agreeing to this I still regret it to this date. Although we both completed the marathon, in good time, I didn't finish alongside Gary. In saying that it was a pleasure to see hime cross the line, having his two children shouting out for their daddy. Gary raised around £800 for Wishes 4 Kids!

The route, starting from Victoria Park, headed out towards Thurmaston with the half marathon runners. At about mile 6 the full and half marathon runners split with the full marathon going out into the countryside towards Syston and Thrussington where we started heading back towards Leicester. With about 7 miles to go we joined the Watermead Park, taking in the scenery, if you had the energy. There were no major climbs during the course, but the last mile was uphill, back towards Victoria Park. For October the weather was extremly kind, warm, fresh, and no rain.
