I have just read this months Star Letter. Hurt my knee 3 months before the GNR and for the month leading up to the race, having rested it fully, I had no problems. That was until the Mass warm up just before the race when it started niggling.
I didn't do what Vicky did and hobbled round for 13.1 miles, not one of my better decisions! I am still suffering now and will not be running for a few weeks yet!
If only I had forgot about the medal, t-shirt, wagon wheel..........etc.....!
PS. I think I'll stick to Triathlons!
