In short:
My best marathon time ever and a course PB by 6mins 10secs. How did I do it? By following your very sensible but hard to execute advice of going out slowly and maintaining a sensible target pace. I slowed down a bit in the last 10kms but nothing at all like the dramatic slow down I usually have. Perfect sunny but cool weather and a great atmosphere. Outstanding!

In short:
Great run overcoming my DNF last year and very pleased to get my sub 4hr goal. Course was nice and scenic and the weather was quite cool to begin but the overall perfect temperature. The 4hr pacer had me working hard as we built up a time cushion which I needed for the last 5 or so kms so though it felt a bit tough near the end it was a great experience.

In short:
Really good course, had aimed for 4.10 so to get a good PB very happy indeed. Well organised race with some good entertainment on course and good to run over the Harbor Bridge, will be back again soon
