One marathon complete! I achieved my primary goal of running without walking or stopping. I also acheived my secondary goal of under 4hrs 30min.
My time was 4hrs 20 mins + 57 seconds. Woohoo. The power of writing down goals.
My 1/2 marathon pace was under 2 hrs so I was hopeful for <4hrs. However the last 10-15 k’s were a killer. I had zero left in the tank at the end and once finished I could hardly walk. The Virgin after party was a mix of a few beers, ice bath, massage and awesome conversation.
None of this would be possible without my beautiful wife Nat. She is the one who signed me up for it!
One of life’s ultimate experiences ticked off. Very pleased with myself. Photos to follow.
