The furthest distance travelled ever for a marathon run, being bounced off continents, must be mad. Ferry across the harbour to start was just amazing, then to come running back over the harbour bridge added to its scenery. That nasty hill at around thirty odd kilometres must be someone's idea of a bad joke. Overall, pretty good, although I did witness one fellow jump into the sea as we ran along the coast road, crazy or what! Reception after at City Hall exceptional, they gave me a huge bag of gifts, thank-you Mayor Christine Fletcher.
