It felt awful to retire from the race. It was the hardest, most intense and tiring experience of my life yet.

I’ll save the experience sharing for another day, just too drained from it all. In the meantime, I’ll be taking a 18 month break from marathons to recharge after 2 years of back-to-back marathons.

It’s not over, I’ll be back in 2014. I’ve some unfinished business and my kids will one day hear of the story when daddy conquered 100km.
