It was like one massive street party out there! I was high-fiving the crowds all the way round. What a perfect end to a perfect week in the city where dreams are made of. I am so blessed that we got to share this experience together. I will never forget crossing the finish line hand in hand and the feeling of complete awe and wonder that was so poignant and overwhelming throughout the entire experience. Thank you New York City for coming out and supporting us. These memories will stay with me forever.
I would like to say a huge thank you to my coach and mentor Tom for putting my training plan together for me and for inspiring me to keep going throughout the long training block in every possible type of weather. I couldn't have achieved any of my running triumphs without him. I never thought that I would ever run 4 marathons in my life. But I am totally addicted now and looking forward to the next one. I am quite happy that I can take a few weeks off from hard interval training sessions, but I know that I will be back and have already booked on to do marathon no. 5 in the new year!
It just goes to prove what a little bit of practice every day can achieve. Small habits don't add up, they compound.
