Taupo Marathon Run

prof<em>image</em>8764738.png just finished a 42.48km run, that lasted for 239 minutes. This run helped burn 2670.0 calories.

Description from Strava: I had a few goals going into today's race. 1) go under four hours. I had to really dig in for the last k but I did it πŸ™‚ 2) take on fuel every 45 minutes... I almost did this. I took the first two, the third was a bit late but I fueled better than I normally do 3) to stay mentally strong... I got foot and class cramps from the 30k mark right until the end but I didn't stop and I didn't slow down too much. I stayed mentally strong so really proud of that. Overall I was 12th female and seventh in my age group. I also ran it five minutes faster than last year πŸ™‚ It's not an easy marathon and the hills on the second loop had definitely got bigger πŸ˜‚ I still have things to work on but it's an improvement so I'll take it. My fifteenth marathon! smashed his marathon as well. We rehydrated well afterwards (yes I have four drinks with my fries... I couldn't decide what I felt like) and we had chocolate milk in wine glasses back at our hotel. Stiff describes how our legs are feeling πŸ˜‚
