Mississauga Marathon done

This was an interesting race. I thought I'd take it easyish pace but a few pit stops had me rushing to keep on pace. Not comfortable.

I knew a few days ago that a high of 20C would not bode well and for some reason avoided wearing a singlet.

In the end, a varied pace run including a few cramp induced walk
breaks had me on the edge for the last two miles but I recovered for a fast last kilometre.

Final time of 3:30:54, a decent way to close spring marathoning. Lots
of work to do to regain the form I had last fall. That's where the fun begins.

Well done! I thought it would be a bit hot for you. I'm glad you were there to cheer Marlene's sub-four as well.

Congrats Kenny!

It was so good seeing you as I headed in for the finish.

I cut it closer than I would have liked, but coudln't be happier.

Thanks for all the support!

Hmm, I wonder what I can do at Toronto? ;)

Congratulations Yumke - that's amazing! I live in Toronto as well and yesterday was a little toasty, especially when the wind wasn't blowing. What's next for you?
