I completed the marathon in 4 hours 25, ran the whole way and somehow sped up the last 10km! I paced myself maybe too slow at the start and the hills but so happy I ran the whole way and finished it! I loved it was an awesome experience. The hips and knees are very tender today but that would be expected!
Thank you so much for all your advise with training it was great to talk to someone with experience. Could have opened a new path for me now!

Ainslie is one of several runners who sought my assistance with preparing to run this year's Rotorua Marathon.
It was also a fundraiser through her work for their hospice and St. John's.
Congratulations Ainslie and thanks so much for the lovely photo and email!
