Comments: The first of three lake races in Milton Keynes over the Easter bank holiday weekend kicks off with the Good Friday Marathon, the longest running marathon in the Enigma Running calendar, now in its fifth year. My target today was to sneak in under 5 hours (the cut-off for anyone wanting to do the half marathon in the afternoon too), but not by too much so I could keep something back for race number two! Although sunny, there was a brisk wind, which was in your face alongside the northbound length of lake Caldecotte, so the 7.25 laps were not the easiest I've done there. A quick cup of coffee in the pub, a change of running shoes & top, and I'm back out to join the others... (Oh - and you'll note from the results that the last finisher was one of the "plodders" - who actually walked the whole event as he's coming back from injury. I ended up lapping him again on the afternoon's half marathon, but all credit to him for his determination to not give up and finish the race, even if he was in pain by the end).
