I just thought I'd post the highlights.
- I ran 8K prior to the half so I could get in 29K for the day
- It was really bloody hot out there (30*C day)
- I was aiming for 2:45 to keep me nice and slow...got 2:47:17 (thanks to the sheer number of portapotties on course - score!)
- Ran near the back of the pack...won't be doing that again...
and in the end...I got this lovely bauble for around my neck...not a bad way to do 29K in marathon training :) I felt like an Olympian when they guy put it over my head :)
