      Go Cal! I think listening to his metronome music is working out great for him 😊

                      What a beast!

                       

                      I swear to you, I'm sitting in my car tracking and I saw him finish and literally said out loud "oh my God what a beast."

                       

                      Okay I'm done listening to this man's sob stories about why he's not going to run well anymore. I fell for it again. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me.

                          Cal is old school and tough as old boots…he doesn’t need 8 days to get used to an 8 hour time difference and he can drink 1.5 litres of beer 2 days before a marathon.

                           

                          He didn’t look in the slightest bit jet lagged when I met him on Friday…so take what he says online with a large grain of salt.

                            Legendary! He'll probably tell us he's pissed caused he missed a moose mug by 20 seconds (did he?)

                              Legendary indeed! This man will continue to run sub 3:00 well into his sixties. Congrats Cal!

                                Thanks all. Couldn’t really have been a bigger disaster. Started feeling cramp and almost pulled out at 27km when I saw my mate because I knew what was about to happen. But I shuffled home, with about 5 stops for excruciating cramp. Energy felt fine, I just couldn’t move my legs without cramp. Absolutely gutted. I’m having beers now

                                 

                                Well it could if you’d taken my advice to go out at 3:10 pace!  I hope the experience hasn’t put you off marathons and you go for another one once the dust settles. 👍
