The weather was not the greatest for the marathon. Mostly raining and very windy. I was pretty cold most of the time. But maybe the cold made me speed up. I was nearly one hour faster than last week at Big Wild Life. But I was still far too slow. I have really fallen behind in my training, partly because of my sprained ankle from the Kilimanjaro climb. I can see that once I get home I will have to get busy and really hit the training hard so I can increase my speed for the Nike Women's Marathon in October. I can spend September really pushing myself while working up in Deadhorse.
I loved Iceland though, even with its wind and rain.
