The Edinburgh Marathon 2006

Well, I managed to finish the Edinburgh Marathon this year, my second marathon ever with a personal best. To say I’m chuffed would be an understatement, I’ve very very chuffed indeed :-). The weather on the day was about 22c not ideal for running, but that didn’t matter so much when it’s a gloriously sunny day and your getting encouragement by the locals along the way.

I ran first 10 miles or so with my mate Chris, who’s ran a few marathons before and is a bit more knowledgeable than me about important thing like starting pace (thankfully!). I’m going to have to get one of those fancy watches that tell you your average speed, if I’m going to run another marathon I recon (Ok I like gadgets!)

Well done Chris, a good time for someone who was carrying an injury and couldn’t train the last 2 weeks before the marathon.

478 Chris Dawson (342) 03:30:53 Male

I took a few photographs of the Edinburgh 2006 Marthon, you can see them below:

  1. Hey Billy, even better time than I thought you got, well done!

    I thought you’d have put the picture I took of you with your hands in the air, that was quite a close up action one? Just wondered if you’d missed it.

    See you tonight at 8.30.
