So numbers 176, 177 and 178 are all complete.

I was at Great Barrow on the Kirtling route once again and it was slightly cooler than the previous Saturday, but it was still warm and I finished 40 minutes quicker than seven days earlier.

The next day took me back to Great Barrow for the Highwayman out and back route and a slightly slower finish.

Then I travelled to Nonsuch Park in South London.

I was up at 5.30am and out of the house by 6am.

I arrived and collected my number. I finished the hilly marathon in mix of warm and muggy rain. A nightmare of a journey home due to accidents on the roads it took me five and a half hours.

Still the countdown continues.
