    4. Hay Heather! You're back on the blogroll. I lost every detail of it when I refreshed the my template, and forgot you (hah hah, as if I could, really) when I rebuilt it.
      So your time for your next flat road marathon will be an hour faster I predict, Canberra in April, 3 hours, guaranteed, although a few more years training might be the key. The current course is hilly too but maybe not according to your definition of "hilly".
