3.58.52

A 6ish minute PB and sub 4, sort of safely. But a pretty crap race. I had to let Ed run on (to a smashing PB of 3:53!!!! from 4:2x!!!!) at half way because all I wanted to do was nap. I honestly do think a horrid week of lead up made a difference, but I can't solely blame it.

It took a lot of mental strength to keep going, and I'm pretty pleased with myself for running a 2:02 half on legs that were already half cooked. More to come. Maybe.

You sound so down after a sub 4 marathon :( Time sounds fantastic to me. Was you hoping for much faster or was it that the 2nd half was so difficult? Congratulations from me. Been great following your progress.

Congratulations on you PB Kate! There is just something very rewarding when you run over the finish line with the clock still reading 3:XX:XX. Looking forward to your full report.

Well done, look forward to the report.

Your comment sort of makes sense ... its how you feel so how can it be wrong :) Seems such a fantastic achievement to go sub 4 though. Maybe it'll make more sense once I read you full report ... no pressure ..... but get on with it :) haha

Nice work Kate. You never know if the marathon gods will smile on you (or not). Recover well.

Well done Kate! Sub-4 is great. I'd love to hear how it went in more detail. I thought of you while I was running the Wellington hills on Sunday...
