Really want to do another marathon, disappointed there was never another Birmingham one after the 2017 event. Have entered the London ballot again, hopefully fourth (or is it fifth?) time lucky. If not will have to try and find another one. Anyone got any suggestions for decent UK ones? Have thought about Milton Keynes as its just up the road from my parents in Buckingham.

London Marathon completed Sunday. Amazing event. Was aiming for sub 3:20 and got 3:08:51 so was chuffed with that.

Excellent stuff sv, well done. Great time.

Nice on Richard, it's technically a down hill marathon as well as I believe it has about a -10 metre descent overall.

Found out a couple of weeks ago I've been selected for the Team GB age group team to race the ITU European Middle Distance Championships in Menen, Belgium in August. Completely unexpected and I'm made up to say the least.
It'll be on the telly box too.

Yeah. Congrats Jon, top achievement and good luck in Belgium. Keep us all updated on how your prep pans out its always good to here peoples stories on here, provides a lot of good motivation to get out there and keep at it.

Just for clarity is the middle distance the 1.5/40/10 or the next one up i.e. 70.3?

Top work, well done mate. Let us know when it's on so I can show my kids and say "I know him. Well I sort of know him, he's one of my 'internet friends'"

70.3 so 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and a 13.1 mile run ie a half Ironman.
