First attempt at Marathon distance, so predicted time based on my 10K/10mile PB (+10 mins for luck!). Prediction was pretty close, as it turned out. Weather wasn't great - rain and a strong SE wind made it feel miserable all the way around. The wind was in yer face on some of the climbs too - not ideal. I probably set off too fast (like most people), and the last five miles were all 8:30+, but I finished with a smile and a flourish, unlike teammate Ian who collapsed puking on the line...now that's dedication!
Cornish GP race No.3 .... PB !! 29th marathon !! "I'm in heaven, PB heaven, da di da da" !! Although I'd done several days of over 20 miles in training (one of 26 miles 4 wks before) this was unexpected as it was a miserable cold wet day with a bitter easterly wind blowing and the 2-lap course has a long hill at mile 10 & mile 22 and has 4 miles each lap along the North coast road - not generally known as a PB course ..... Previous best time on this course - 4:43. Previous PB 4:29:54 (Dartmoor Vale, 2003)
