I took part in the 261 Women's Marathon in Palma this morning and battled the rain and cold (Yes! In Mallorca!) for 42kms, finishing in 3h34m, 7th woman overall. Thanks to our Miguel and George for accompanying me along parts of the route. It was 3 laps, so the company was much-appreciated. I had secretly wanted to do a sub 3h30m and it looked probable until km 27 when I slowed right down and couldn't pick up the speed again. Next time! Preferably in the sunshine! Well done to Miguel who completed the full 42kms in 3h39m. The highlight of the race was, without doubt, meeting Kathrine Switzer. Here she is greeting me at the finish line. A very special photo.
