You can see the splits I took on my watch (thus not necessarily accurate) during the race below. I have also added in the splits that were sent to me post race for the 5km, 15km and 6.1mi marks.
Oh – it is HOT!
Wahoo – first 5km down, three to go!
Hmmm I noted here that it took me just over 1 min to get out of a water station! Insane!
This was an awesome mile and I felt strong and fast and pulled some stupid antics for the photographers J (I will post when they send)
Total bottleneck - forced to a pace barely resembling a jog as road thins and crowds encroach. Unable to pass any runners.
Foot started to ache from running on cambered roads
This was the last mile that I remained under on my Pacetat! Oh and I walked for 30/40 secs – foot killing.
Took a 40 sec walk break after the 15km mark – leg / foot felt numb
Slowed to GU
Yes I walked again for another 45 sec! Why? I just lacked some motivation after another bottle neck as the course went from two lanes down to one
Yes I am not proud but I walked up part of the hill to the finish line. Who puts a hill at the end, talk about cruel!
I pressed the wrong buttons on my watch here so was unsure what time I crossed – I thought it to be 2.09.03 – adjusted chip time was sent through to me as 2.07.56
