Things I remember.....
- Saying to Chris in the car on the way downtown that I didn't want it to start off raining - I didn't care if it started raining once we'd set off but not for the start
- As we turned the corner into City Park we heard the gun go off for the full marathon - meaning it was 1/2 hour till my start
- In 30 minutes I had to go pee twice and whilst waiting in the (mammoth) queue the second time it started POURING
- that running in the rain is sweet......it means that no-one knows that your nose is running and you're dribbling :-)
Clock time - 2.06.42
Chip time - 2.04.39 which gave me an average pace of 5:55/km
Happy with that!
(and for the record, no this does not mean a full marathon is next. I seriously admire the committment and training required for that. Just training for the 1/2 gave me an insight into that much...but I will never say never.....;-)
