London Marathon 2013

Last year I ran in the Brighton Marathon, but I decided this year I would head up to London and run in the big one. The training was tough over the winter, as yet again the UK weather was unseasonably bad, with one of the coldest winters on record. The week before the marathon the race was hit by the sad news from Boston, but I think it gave most runners all the more conviction to run. I was two minutes down on my performance last year, finishing in a time of 2:48:46 but sneaking into the top 500. I was pretty pleased with the time, as I missed several weeks training with the flu, and really enjoyed the experience of running in a big city race again. I was raising money for Scope this year, and collected just over £400 in donations for the charity. My Virgin Money Giving page is: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/boycey
