Oct 16, 2017 What a day! It rained hard for the first 2hrs and I got quite cold. The downpour also turned the first half of the course into an unrunnable, slippery mud bath. I think we were all pretty happy when the sun came out about 15km into it, a lot of very guys I talked to during the first half were already mentally struggling - it was tough out there. A few blokes I ran with during the first half of the race told me they were 'absolutely fucked', one of them had even been crying. I was okay; had zero low points or rough patches although I was a bit concerned at one point after it took me just over 30mins to cover just 2km (kilometres 23-25)!
