Results update 31 May 2014 – Edinburgh marathon and parkruns

 Edinburgh Marathon – 25 May 2014

I missed Ian Micklethwaite who ran the Edinburgh Marathon last week, this is what he wrote (and still a great time Ian!):

“Unfortunately unable to reproduce last years sub 3hr heroics. The head went at 21miles more than the body and I “jogged” the last 5miles to the finish. I thought Rugby was tough a sport, but since taking up running I know which is harder and takes the most effort and dedication.

Time to take a break from marathon running to focus on the shorter stuff with some new goals in mind.
