Marathon Matt finally won a race.
I say finally because he's ran so many, and I knew he had it in him!
We're so proud of Daddy Matt, although I have to say the kids kind of expect him to win lol
Matt ran the Emerald City race here In Dublin. He chose to race the 1/4 marathon. A nice short distance built for speed.
Here he is at the off.
We managed to see Daddy at 2 1/2 and 4 1/2 miles as the route lapped around. Then we dashed back to the finish. Trying to get both boys to the car, into car seats and drive to the finish and get there in time to see the finish was tough! But we made it with 2 minutes to spare :)
He came in at 36:02 which is a course record.
That's a 5:30 minute mile pace.
Second place was a whole 2m30seconds behind!
Well done Marathon Matt! Now let's win some races with prize money ;0)
