Manchester Marathon – 19th April 2015

by Sam Amend - 19th April 2015 | General News, Race Reports

A great well organised race and back for the 2nd time.  Managed to move up a placing and finished 2nd this year.  Unfortunately although I was on for a life time best and paced by Alex (Boyfriend) we found the last 5k tough in the wind with no shelter and lost a lot of time.  Weirdly though it felt  even through the line comfortable and like I hadnt even run a  marathon.  So frustrating when in good condition and had done some great efforts leading upto Manchester.  Based on my finishing time 2hrs 44 I realised I could run another race just over a month later and entered Edinburgh.
