Holly’s Hamburg agony

HOLLY Rush’s hopes of a personal best evaporated in the heat of the Hamburg Marathon in the closing miles.
The Team Bath AC runner eventually finished fifth woman in a time of 2:38.26, 61 seconds outside the PB of 2:37.35 that she ran a year ago in Zurich.
“Holly was slightly disappointed with the result as she wanted a personal best,” said husband and coach Martin Rush.
“She felt very comfortable at halfway and even beyond to 35k but then dropped off the pace. Otherwise she would have run a PB by a minute.
“But given her build-up and the conditions – it was very warm – then it was another solid run.”
Nonetheless, it was Rush’s second best time of her career and another solid performance.
