London Marathon 2019

SHORT REPORT

3:26:57 – 834 M45-49, 6,003 overallIMG_2186.jpg

LONG REPORT

I decided to extend my stay and help out looking after my other nephew as my sister was living at the hospital with Isaiah. With virtually no training done I decided to defer my marathon place.

This report really has to start the day before to give it proper context. So… last night was going to be our last night in Cannes since Rachel and I had to get back after the race on the Sunday as I had lectures first thing Monday morning.

OtillO Cannes Sprint, 2018

SHORT REPORT CannesSprint
2:30:28 – 6th Mixed Pair, 13th Overall
~12.5k run, 3.75k swim

LONG REPORT
The weather was beautiful in Cannes for the race weekend and, though the races organisers had said that neoprene shorts would be sufficient rather than full wetsuit, it appeared that no one had decided to ditch the swim run suit.
