While all of you were catching forty winks and then slurping on your lattes I was running from Devonport through Takapuna and across the Harbour Bridge and then out to St Heliers and back to Victoria Park.
I don't recommend it despite the enjoyment I had crossing the finish line in just on 4 hours.
I had planned/hoped to finish in 3:45 but slowed down in the head wind along along Tamaki Drive.
Now I'm very sore. It's a pleasant sore though.
I might stick to half marathons in the future. Much easier on my old bones.
