Gold Coast Marathon

- 10km, half-marathon, Marathon
Inspired by Brian Williams I took to the streets of the Gold Coast to run my first ever marathon. After a complete soaking on the start line there was a reprieve in the dreadful weather and the sun managed to come out. Absolutely over the moon with my 4 hours 13 minutes.
PB and first sub 3 after missing by 8 seconds last year.
Worried by forecast strong winds but pretty fair on the day. Did get soaked 3 minutes before gun. Went with gun 3hr pacer who did a perfect job for the conditions, banked a little time first half, just enough. Also the bus was organised and supportive. Great day still smiling and family glad the monkey is off my back. Cheers to you blokes for inspiring me over the journey as well!!
First marathon. Jumped on the 3 hour bus, perfect splits all the way. Pacers did a fantastic job and the crowd support was brilliant. Great race!
Four seasons in one day, great fun!
Biggest event I've done, fantastic organisation. Fuelled on pork pies and rice pudding, worked brilliantly for first half then strangely everything slowed down!
First marathon since 2008 and some fairly challenging conditions with wind and rain. But I am very pleased with the result - a 7 second negative split shows I haven't forgotten how to pace these. Or maybe I'm just too soft on myself in the first half?
