Comments:

In 11 starts at this event, this was by far the most heat stressed. Official weather records show that the RH was 100% (!!) for the first 3.5 hours of the race and then dropped to 92% by my race finish. Never seen so many paramedic incidents late in the race. The heat stress is obvious in my dramatic drop in pace beyond 30km.

What would you do differently?:

Not a lot on race day. Managed injury as well as possible.
Post race
Warm down:

Beer.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

L) proximal hamstring tendon limiting any long runs in this campaign.

Event comments:

40th anniversary race. Sold out marathon field (6,700) and 10.000 in the half marathon.

Great organisiation as always.
