The atmosphere was carnival like with 30,000 women (and some men as long as they ran for charity) took over Union Square likes swarms of neon flies and also made the record books with the most women ever to run a marathon!
Water stations are at at most mile markers and even they deserve a thank you so much effort has gone into this day and how many people volunteer to help is admirable
Soaking with Epsom salts and my medal!
It's still only 11 am and feel like it's the end if the day the feet and toes are killing but it's so worth it!
Regular training and sheer determination got me through but also the fact that I was raising money for a charity close to my heart followed me through all day, it gives you the extra boost you need to go the whole way so anyone else wanting to donate thee is still time and am hugely grateful!
Thanks to everyone who has put up with the running chat over the last 3 months and for your support I would recommend this to anyone if I can do you definitely can!
