I think it's 3:25 for a man of Hans' vintage. But in reality you need to be well under. The cutoff this year was about 3 minutes under the stated qualifying time and getting lower each year. I expect he'd be ok with 3:20 but he could always improve that number in Mississauga in the spring if Boston is the plan.
Yes the ending was tough. Felt great 28k (4:12 on that specific km), ok the next 5k up to 33k but then I slowed down and not gradually but dramatically from 445 to 530 and the last 5k was between 530 and up to 545. Legs and feet couldn't simply take the beating anymore. More to write and say later; it is Heineken time now. Thanks for following.
