(how ironic that the tube station on the way home was Mile End!!)
I had the time of my life. It was very hard, a lot harder than I thought it would be, but crossing that finishing line was one of the most amazing highs I've ever had. Just finishing was a real accomplishment, something I could never have even dreamed about a few years ago.
Thank you all for the amazing love and support!! When it got tough I imagined you all cheering me on :)
Full race report and heaps of photos (the Canon 450D paid for itself yesterday!) to come later today!
