Getting very close now! Nerves
How was it - I found it tough - very pleased with 3:21:55 ish final time awaited.
windy and hilly - very well organized
I managed 4:36:42, way exceeding my expectations. I found it tough, but I was expecting it to be bad! Wind was only really an issue for the last few kms, and I was just grateful for the cloud more than anything.
Organisation was very good, besides the km markers which could have been a lot more obvious!
Hello again and well done both of you! To think you were worried about the 6 hour limit russellelly!! And 3:21:55 is fantastic other Russell!
I am really chuffed with 4:01:36 which exceeded my expectations too. Actually ended up doing a very slight negative split because I was quite conservative in the 1st half and was feeling pretty good so kept pushing in the 2nd half. Of course the last 10k felt loooong! Of course now I have to do another one and go at least 97 seconds faster to get under 4 hours!
Also felt it was well organised but agree about the lack of obvious markers - I was glad for my garmin to keep track of where I was. But really enjoyed it and feeling sore but very satisfied to have conquered my 1st marathon!
