Interesting that others found it tough, I did too but couldnt really put my finger on why that was. I know I was very very thirsty during the race and lost a lot of time at the drinks stations so I knew I lwasnt going to make the time I wanted, maybe that affected me mentally, but I was a good 6-7 mins down on what | expected to be able to do.
Enjoyed the race though, well organised, I never register the surroundings much anyway.
I arrived on Friday night and flew back Monday, If I do this again I am going to arrive Saturday and stay till Tuesday as I spent a lot of time on my feet on Sat which I shouldnt have done but didnt want to miss the chance to see the city on such a warm day
