Melbourne Marathon is over for another year

Well the Melbourne Marathon is over for another year. These
are the first ten places in the Half Marathon.

1 Tatsunori Sento 1:05:15
2 Scott Rantall 1:07:23
3 Jeremey Horne 1:07:53
4 Andrew White 1:08:29
5 Grant Morgan 1:09:21
6 Tom Aldred 1:10:06
7 Christian Ashby 1:10:40
8 Brett Coleman 1:11:02
9 David Whitehead 1:12:35
10 Phillip Bowes 1:13:29

I'd planned to be amongst them, but found myself at home on
the couch. Don't ask, I've been having trouble with my
right knee and it came good just last week but it was too
late for the Half by then. Still I'm looking forward to
some serious racing over Xmas.

Last year I placed four in the full marathon, but I've
decide to concentrate on my 10k times for the moment and
won't run another marathon for a couple of years.

It looks like more than 7000 did take to the streets
for the 29th Melbourne Marathon and Japan's Kazunari Suzuki,
achieving a personal best of 2 hours 23 minutes 55 seconds to
win the marathon. He's fourth from left in the photo below.



Well done to all of them.

I can't believe I missed it :(

  • David,

    it's always sad to miss a big race especially through injury.

    What time where you hoping for in the half, would you have placed?

  • Simon,

    you can never say exactly what your going to run in any race, but from my current training times I'd think a 1 hour 7 - 8 minute time for the half is possible. That would place me in the top ten but I'd like to have placed in the top 5 that would have been sweet.
