Fourth race: The Peninsula Marathon 42km

Much better than Red Hill, which tells me my muscles are stronger, and my training is working. Didn’t quite get the time I wanted of 4:10, and still much slower than my PB last year (3:51), but I didn’t have to walk between water stations. Oh yeah and I did nearly vomit at the end – not due to physical exertion of course, but due to an over extended stomach. The mixture of water, Coca-Cola, Powerade, and Gu would have been fine had I not drunk a chocolate milk…
