Manchester marathon, 2nd April 2017
Well done to Leanne Salem on completing her first ever marathon. Here is her report of the day:
Race report …well with much excitement I set of on April fools day for the drive to Manchester..Sunday 2nd April…6 am breakfast…40mins walk to the start which actually got rid of my nerves..it was a beautiful day..bags dropped and off I went ..nice and slow to start ..kept thinking it’s only a run nothing bad will happen ( as weeks before at Kirkley half I had maranoia..so I’ve been told )..I didn’t have it here, I loved every second every minute every hour …the crowds, the music, the lovely people of Manchester keeping us in jelly babies..I absorbed it all, every 26.2miles of it and yes I would don’t all again ..even just for the free beer at the end and the massive medal ..
And all for a great cause Cancer Research UK.
