It's all over, the big day has come and gone and what an amazing day it was.

That was the first of what I hope will be many, annual runnings of the Brighton Half Marathon. An utter triumph for the City, individual triumphs for around 8,000 runners and a brilliant day out for the 80,000 or so spectators.

It was such an honour for me to be invited to the pre-marathon party at the Pavillion last night. I was truly blown away by the sheer determination and hard work acheived by the race directors and the whole BM team that have and as far as I know are still working around the clock to make this race possible. Steve Ovett gave a great speech albeit with a strong twang of Aussie accent which quite suited him. Tim Hutchinson gave me a giggle when he gave his speech he mentioned that when he first had the idea of holding the Brighton Marathon he put his thoughts to the local constabulary whose initial response was "are you having a laugh?"

I've had a few distractions in the last couple of weeks which have taken my attention away from running a bit. I got a second 20 miler in before I started tapering though, so I feel fairly well prepared.

I had a bad dream last night that it was Brighton marathon day and for some reason I had not paid my entry fee. The fee in my dream was £190 and I was in a panic to get to the bank with my credit card to pay. My father was present although not being very helpful and even less so when the bank told me that my credit card was out of date. It was 11am by this stage and the race had been going for two hours. I still had a plan that I could catch up with the runners but attempting to persuade the bank to pay my fee was clearly not going to happen.

Looking through a clothing catalogue recently I was amazed at how much larger some dress sizes go. Is it now considered normal for dress sizes to go up to a size 32? If so is that not encouraging people to remain unhealthy?
