#498 - after the marathon - the tale of the worm

Ok so this is the graph from "Track My Runner". The black is Monica's friend Nikki who ran a perfect race in 3:36. The blue is Paul who ran like an idiot. Out too fast, then eased back to the right pace, then hit the wall with 10 km to go and died over the final 5km
Here's Paul passing by near our apartment at the 16 mile (approx 25km) marker, still looking quite fresh
Some other abiding memories of the day: the cold, the security, the packed course, the atmosphere, the finish, the medal (not worth it)
i did 3:55, aged 55. How did Col do 2:55 aged 60?
