Christchurch Marathon


Mini Forklift

Mini Forklift

In short:
The day started with rain and a temperature in the single digits and that's how it stayed for the whole day. My plan was to run a 3hr30 marathon and run a consistent steady pace for the whole race. I took advantage of some of the 'larger framed' runners to shield me from the rain & wind and left them like flailing ducks in a pond whenever I felt strong enough to do so. By 38km the weather had got to me and I was reduced to a few final 5.30/km's; I happily crossed the line in 3:35.04 for this challenging 42.6km(?!) marathon, netting me a PB of 15mins. Yeehaa!
