Marathons and races around the world

This was my best marathon yet, even though it was done on the least training. These things definitely get easier as the body adapts to what it needs to do. I only took 4 minutes off my Paris time but I finished strongly and my legs wee pretty comfor

Scotland is fine, I can't say it's amazing. More trees than people. The countryside in the summer must be amazing, but also the whole country in the winter must be horrible! Incredible how humans can survive that....
