I never expected to run a race fuelled by so much support, support that grew tenfold after running through the Mile 21 tunnel of love, and doubled once again when two very prized friends and teammates jumped in to pace me patiently and encouragingly for the last 5 miles, home to a new 20 minute PB of 3.13.

Support is an incredible thing, both psychologically and physically, so when you have it, cherish it. I feel very very lucky to be surrounded by such positive and thoughtful individuals, and I doubt that I would have much power in my legs without it.
