Lochness Marathon Helen Pedley

30/09/2015

I arrived on Saturday with a place for the Marathon but also a 10k place as my back up plan, as training had not gone well and I was not confident about the full 26.2. I decided to go ahead with the marathon and and was up bright and early on Sunday to get the bus to the start line of the marathon at 7:30am in the middle of nowhere.

 

. The atmosphere was great at the start and the weather was perfect for the run. The local school pipe band started the race and set us off for the quick down hill start. The scenery is fantastic and with the sun shining you cannot help but admire it and take a few photos. The first half went well but the second half was more of a struggle for me and I ended up with a run/walk strategy to finish in 5:09, a bit disappointed as I would have liked to get under the 5 hours. There was hot soup and a meal at the finish with a great medal, t shirt and goody bag. A well organised run for anyone who fancies a trip to the Highlands.
