and....London Marathon finisher 2008 - 51 weeks after being critically injured. Nearly bleed to death after being hit by a van driven by an 'inconsiderate' motorist, when out for a training bike ride. Went through the side window of the van (window was closed and van was moving). Airlifted to A&E by Sussex Police H900 for blood transfusion and emergency surgery - jugular was lacerated, brachial plexus nerve damaged, skull fractured, clavicle and scapula badly fractured, ribs broken, lung punctured. Severe brain injury - was in a coma due to a subarachnoid haemorrhage; other than that just a few scratches ;-) Returned home 9 weeks later!
December 2009 corrective osteotomy with plate and screw fixation to straighten clavicle - now literally a 'stainless steel' ironman, but due to brachial plexus nerve damage, trapezius muscle has atrophied and shoulder is partly disabled.
2014, I made a return to the London Marathon six years later, with a goal of 'enjoying' the day with no real target time other than to finish. Different perspective: When I was out shopping with my family; I got chatting with the girl who served us in a sports shop, she found out I ran 4:27 for the London marathon: 'that's well good' she said - even though that was by far the slowest I've run a marathon, for once I had to agree!
