Slightly less glorious end as could only lie on a stretcher to receive my medal but managed to get to the International tent to share stories with some of you. Also managed to get my picture on the back page of the Durban Mercury as a prize for this show of pain !
Loved every moment of it and will be back, just not sure when .....
Good to catch up with everyones reports and meeting a few other fellow runners on my travels around KZN.
Difficult to remember everything of the race as I you are so focused but the reports seembed to echo my feelings in the last 10k when the energy was there to walk but not run. Knew at the top off Pollys that I could walk to finish but a bronze was an outside bet as I could only walk at that stage due to cramping.
4k to go and about 26mins left and started to run and although I was still walk-running Into stadium the supporters urging to run for the bronze spurred me on to finish in 10:59:07
