So... I did it without stopping or walking which was all I was looking for and in a time of 2 hours 2 mins ( unofficially). Ill get the actual time tomorrow when it is printed in the local paper that is sponsoring the event.

Got myself a snazzy t-shirt and a medal, and also in the goodie bag that was given out after the race was a small tin of deoderant, a bottle of water....and a chocolate biscuit which I didnt eat because my baby son Kyle saw it first.

I can safely say that my CrossFit training made a massive difference to this run. the last distance run I did outdoors was a 10km run a couple of years back and after it I was completley exhausted. This race however I did not once feel like my fitness was going to let me down. I saw people collapsing due to exhaustion and stoping due to cramps etc, but the whole way through the race all I could think about was the pain I was feeling in my legs because of the seminar on thursday and the pouding sensation I was getting in my knees.

Thanks CrossFit

Awesome work Davie!! And I know what you are saying about the pain in your legs. Have been moving house for the last couple of days and they are still barking three days later.

Mate, that rocks! I know you hate running, so to embrace that distance and tear it up is good to see!

Nice moves big man, see you in London for the big one next year...:uhoh:
