Hi Everyone,

I'm going to be running in the Auckland Marathon (42km) again this year, and have decided to run to raise money for the Heart Foundation NZ. As a HeartRacer I'm after people to sponsor me through my Fundraising page, and the money goes to the Heart Foundation NZ under my user account for them to keep track. I'm NZD $220 away from my goal, so any donations are greatly appreciated.
The link is: http://heartracer.org.nz/jonathansharp/

Thank you,

Jonathan

Thank you.

Well, it's an early wake up... 3hrs of sleep.
Hopefully all goes well today. Just getting ready and then will be off.

Thanks,
was nice weather. Especially for the first half. Second Half got much hotter.
Here's my so called report:

Well, that's Auckland Marathon done for another year.
Sore legs, unable to walk properly but event went well.
Up at 3am, got a ride at 4:25 with some friends.
Caught the ferry over to Devonport and waited around until the run started. While waiting for the start I saw someone in a Blue clone trooper armour.
Ran well up to the harbour bridge keeping a pace around 4:30 min K's. I started to slow down on the bridge due to the hill, but then over the other side after crossing over some timing mats was able to speed up. No lollies under the harbour bridge?? Every year there's been people handing them out, but not this year Sad
From there I gradually came to the waterfront after going past Victoria Park where the finish was, and go out through all the bays with crowds cheering us on. was a long way out and back along the waterfront, on the way back looked at my garmin and saw I could walk faster at some points. Slowly dragged myself to the finish, able to do a sprint before the finish line.
Had some nice food to eat at the Heart Foundation tent, for us HeartRacers, and a good leg massage too. Caught the train back to Henderson, which I had to wait 50 mins for, then a long trip back not feeling good. Walked home from the station and immediately went to bed for a sleep.

Overall was a great run, and will still do it again next year.
Thank you everyone for your support!
