Robert was the unfortunate chap that passed away at the end of yesterdays race. He was seemingly a well trained competent runner posting a 1.30 half and aiming for 3.20 yesterday.
Its struck a chord with me as I crossed in 3.18 and passed a number of people in bother going down the mall, in particular one chap just after the finish receiving a lot of attention, which could have been him.
Anyway, it serves as a timely reminder for those with marathons still to come to listen to your body before and during the race. Its not like a 10k where you can sit at your limit for 20 minutes.
Just be careful, its not worth trying to gain 90 seconds on your finish time.
