  • Congrats! In Disneyland, lots of people wear their medals from all the races from the whole weekend! They sound very jingly jangly! May this be the first mara of many!

    • Thanks Sammy! Disneyland must be one super fun marathon. I realise I was harsh on the medal thing. Wish I could wear mine everywhere now, but instead I’ve got it hanging above my desk. 🙂

  • Congratulations Carolyn! What a great wrap up of your amazing achievement! I did my first half on the same day and loved hearing you talk about the crowd support by calling out your name as you run by…so awesome! Well done!

  • Congratulations Carolyn. Thank you for demonstrating that it (big goals) can be achieved.
    I’d better look into this operation move thingy.

    • Oh thanks Cherene! If you head to they’re offering early bird prices for the August intake – and enter code word CARTEL for an extra 10% off. xx
