In short:
You wait three years for a sub-4 and then two come along at once! A perfect day on home turf with amazing support.

In full:
Having entered this local race purely for the enjoyment and not expecting much (having PB'd Leicester three weeks ago with a 3:53), my plan was to stick to a steady pace, chat to friends and not get too carried away. Instead I found myself able to push on the hills and the sub-4 dream was suddenly a possibility as I started the last descent. The result? A 17-minute improvement on last year, my second fastest marathon and second sub-4 in three weeks. Still can't quite believe it's happened, especially on a course with 2100ft of elevation! Legs, I promise you can rest now...
