WMCA (World Masters Championships Athletic) - marathon (Toronto, Canada) (2018/10/21):
3:07:29 - 2nd Masters age category Total, 2nd WMCA age category too. 23rd female total.
Finally time for THE race of this too-short season. Weather conditions? 2°C, real feel -4°C, grey and high humidity. Wonderful... After all the races this year being in above 25°C... this one close to zero.
Good start and along with the 90min-half marathon group until km20. Passing nicely halfway in 1:31. The second half got slower due to losing feeling in the thighs, getting passed by other ladies about km34, waking up during final 7-5km and passing 4 ladies (and lots of guys) before the final sprint.
No wonderful time as such. But with those weather conditions, considered it as ok-for-thr-day. Getting back home with three medals with two "2nd place in age group" silver will be the clear achievement of the day.
Definitely more-than-ok Sunday run under the grey Canadian skies. The warm-up is completed. For now...
A bit of rest before new adventures :-)
NOTE: Björn Suneson arrived with a nice second place in M70.
