In short:
7th marathon this year, not quite a sub3, but it was very very windy. Did I mention the wind?

In full:
Picturesque and a unique marathon located at the iconic Rottnest Island. The sleepy island awakens once a year greeting some 200 marathon runners attempting to take on the 4 lap course across an undulating, often humid at this time of year, and subject to the ocean winds. Didnt disappoint, slightly cooler temperatures this year but made up by the extra strong headwinds meant no runners could cheat the conditions this year. Consistent splits but couldn't quite break 3 hours on the day. Managed 4th overall and nice to see good mate Tony going one place better and sneaking under 3 hours.
