You are right. I was basically doing cramps management the last 12 to 15 km, stretching every 5 minutes or so. I blammed myself did not do any long runs. I still have plantar fasciitis on my left heel. Amazingly, it didn't bother me. My physio therapist warned me not to push it during the marathon, otherwise it will never heal. My usual pace is 9:30 to 10:30 min/mile. I think I was doing like 12:30 min pace most of the time. I am happy with it. I am not competitive runner anymore. My time has passed. I am a recreation runner nowadays.
LAM is always walker friendly. There is no time limit. Even you finish the next day, someone from the organization will always wait for you at the finish line to give you your deserved medal. But of course, after certain time, the course is opened to traffic again and the runner/walker has to use the sidewalk and obey all the traffic signals.
HK is different, the course involves the freeways, tunnels, and bridges, there is no possible way they will let the runners continue to run on those after their time is up.
The weather was good this year. Last year it was like over 30C, I had to go inside a store to buy an ice cold popsicle to suck at mile 18.
As for the 12 hours runner/walker. Did you mean him? http://video.knbc.com/player/?id=225294. What an inspiration!!
