Gold Coast Marathon
- Gold Coast, Australia
- 10km, half-marathon, Marathon
Started out at an ambitious but comfortable pace and was lifted by the support and seeing Yuki and the elites (although he had his mansuit on from just 16k!). Knuckled down from halfway to 34k and was doing lots of overtaking whilst the effort increased. Couldn’t hold on though as the humidity got to me and plenty of others, even the 3 hour pacers didn’t finish. No regrets and happy to have given it a go and the first 32k was the most fun I’ve had in a marathon!
2 minute 49 sec PB but just missed sub 3.
My mistake, I was ahead of the sub 3 net time pacer from the 4th km, but only realised the pacer had dropped out at the last turnaround with 5km to go...hence not quite on pace... Still very happy with the PB, 81 percent age grade and second in age category.
