On Sunday 9 April 2006 I ran my 6th marathon, my 2nd in Canberrra. There is a marvelloous atmosphere at this event. It is a very accessible event and therefore attended by many CoolRunners. This makes it very social and a time to catch with old friends and meet some of the CooolRunners whom you have come to know in to some degree via the CoolRunning website.
We have spent a lot of time conversing with eachother over the internet. An event like Canberra becomes very special.
Congratulations to Norma, Claire, Tara and Matt on there great individual achievements. I was privileged to spend time with them on the weekend to to be able to share some of their excitement.
For me, the weekend, a gift from Robyn my wife, exceeded all expectations. I will always treasure the experience.
My run went very well except for the last 4K's which were very hard. I had run out of steam.
Finishing in 3:21:27 was a special added bonus to the whole weekend.
