Hi all, I finished the marathon about 2 1/2 hours ago, I did it in 3hrs 41mins 38secs, my net time was actually 3:40:32, I was very happy with the run, conditions were a bit overcast at the start about 14 degrees and it was about 19 when I finished, it is a fairly flat run that is basically parallel to Lake Ontario.
I did the first half in 1:50:10 (taking off the time to get to the start line) and doing 1:50:22 in the 2nd half, I ran home well in the last 12kms picking up over 200 runners, I was still fairly sore and considering my preparation had not been that great I can't complain about my time.
See you all back in Canberra in a few weeks, and for those running Bulls Head, keep the training going.

Two years ago I pulled up injured after only a few steps and was wheeled from the track. So here goes...
