|What a view from the top|
|Kel came in 6th in the female field and 38th overall|
The downhill was fast and I passed many runners making their way back up the track and some that were finishing the marathon. I offered encouragement and the sense of sportsmanship and spirit was really high amongst everyone, no matter how they were travelling.
As I crossed the stones I kept the hammer down to the finish, I ran past Fats and Mick Donges, who were cooling down after their top performances in the marathon, and at this point the look on my face said how I was travelling. I ran into the finish and crossed the line 3rd overall in 93.09 (which was over 9 minutes quicker than the old course record), redemption, well this was 35 minutes and 27 places better than last year, so yes this chapter is closed.
