Ed: Finally we hear from Paul Stimpson who was recently reporting on his Park Run 5Ks, now reporting on his exhausting Brighton achievement:
…I have been recovering. Yes it was very warm and not much breeze to help cool down. I wore the Vegan Runners vest and must say that I got lots of encouraging shouts from the crowd which helped a lot, keeping me going, especially towards the end. Was hoping for a time of 4hrs and was on track and going well but was 5mins under my pace at 20miles and finished in 4hrs 15mins 12sec….. Having said that I have now realised that this time is a personal best for me, so that’s good. Bring on next year, I have already signed up.
