Quote Of The Day
“We reached halfway in 1:04:57. I felt great and was pumped that I didn’t need to run faster the second half to hit my goal. Just after halfway some guy in our pack was complaining to the rabbits that we were running too fast. [Australian Commonwealth Games champion] Michael Shelley told him we were perfect. He complained some more. [British 2:10 marathoner] Scott Overall said we were right on pace. He kept complaining to the pacers. Being the closest to him I yelled in his ear ‘WE’RE PERFECT!!’ He kept quiet after that. If it’s too fast then drop back.”
