1 hour 14 minutes 31
That was my time and for not being as prepared as I could of and should of been, I will take it.
It was good weather, not to hot, I still wore a baseball hat and sunglasses.
I ran the best I could but mainly speed walked, I guess is what you could call it.
A couple of issues of my own doing, the T shirt I wore was too short and I had to keep pulling it down, wrong ear phones, I borrowed Phil’s but should of wore proper head phone. Over my baseball cap. I also have a pocket full of Barley sugar. partly for energy and helped keep my mouth moist til i could get water.
What I found missing along the way was a kilometer marker, I had it in my ear but a visible marker would of helped. Also missed was the sunscreen before starting out, the Cancer Council was not there.
The water stations and mist tunnel are always much appreciated and the frozen ice block helped also.
To those runners along the way, who gave me a pat on the back, a thumps up or verbal encouragement, THANK YOU. It always seems to come at the time I needed it. Still new to running, I have a lot to learn but the running community is a great bunch of support folks.
West Pac was the main sponsor this year, a little tweaking of things and next year should be a ripper.
