Ran this with my twin brother Jeff. Weather wet and cool. We adopted a run/walk pattern to maximise the chances of Jeff completing it with recent recovery from Achilles trouble. It was a good call, helped us both at times, and our finish time was the best we could reasonably have expected.
The weather really was horrible and the slight breeze chilled my hands badly. Good job I’d layered up well. Noted the need for an unusual number of pit stops.
As usual we smiled our way around, and got a good shout out from the finish line announcer – “TWIIIINS!!”
