In short:
After life interrupted training in the final few weeks, was pretty pleased with the result. An awesome event finishing at Australia‘s largest pub with 175 beer taps (a shame I don’t drink!).

After life interrupted training in the final few weeks, I was pretty pleased with the result. Was going ok till about 35km, when it was time to zip up the Yuki suit,but the zip got stuck, and despite a few attempts I resigned to roughing it out for a (for me) respectable result) An awesome event finishing at Australia‘s largest pub with 175 beer taps (a shame I don’t drink!).

In short:
Disappointed that my goal pace of 4minute k's only lasted 10km! But managed to hold a respectable pace to finish just outside 3hrs.

In full:
54th marathon completed, in what was close to perfect running conditions but not on my A-Game today. Happy to 'only' slow 10minutes from my goal time of 2.50 given my fade from 10k. Although would have been nice to dip under 3hrs!

In short:
Another crack at a sub 3 marathon and yet again I fell short. Disappointed but happy with a PB.

In full:
The Perth Marathon had a new start and finish location outside a huge pub on the grass bank of the Swan River. After sitting on a 3:05 pb for a couple of years I was keen to finally crack the sub 3. A beautiful cool start on a sunny day but a headwind after 18kms meant I started working a bit harder and ended up falling off the 3hr bus at 38km. Still, it was a 4 minute PB and a shorter step to the sub 3.
