That was painful but good fun! Feet just about held out with the new trainers and plenty of painkillers. 
Official time 52:50. Aimed for sub 60 so very happy with that. :-D
Also made a couple of running buddies, Mario and Luigi!

I still intend to keep pushing for longer distances and faster times. I'm doing the Bristol half marathon in September and my ultimate goal is to do the London Marathon next year in under 4 hours. Assuming I get accepted I have a lot of work today if I am to achieve that.

As some of you will know I work as a developer for MixRadio. A spin off online music company following the Microsoft's acquisition of Nokia last year. MixRadio was originally a Nokia Lumia exclusive app.
I'm proud to announce that our app is now available for iOS and Droid under private Beta!

Popular streaming music service, MixRadio, has today announced its official arrival on Android at an event in New York City. The expansion away from Windows Phone comes as MixRadio recently left Microsoft ownership and was acquired by LINE, perhaps best known for its cross-platform messaging app. And for HTC owners there's an added bonus, too. So what is MixRadio? If you're not...
