3,700 runners lined up on the start...and I was behind 3,600 of them I think!

Entering the famous Cheltenham Racecourse. Many people struggled with this section as it's so exposed and you can see the runners a LONG way ahead of you...but I loved it.

There was a samba band at 11.5 miles and the far side of the Racecourse, but not many people were sticking around to enjoy them!

After stopping for photos, chatting to everyone, tweeting, a water fight, picking out yellow jelly babies from the tubs on offer and taking it very comfortably I finally finished in 2:14:31
