In short:
Who would have thought this race would be run in 30 degree heat in Ireland!?! The conditions were absolutely brutal and I had Martin's voice in my head telling me to reassess my race and drop my pace so I didn't overheat. I was aiming for a sub 2.55 and was in perfect shape for it but that was never realistic given the weather. I nearly opted for the half which was an option given by the organisers, who were absolutely terrific, but I just had to tough it out or I'd never have forgiven myself. Next stop New York City Maraton :)
