Herald Sun - - NEWS - CLAIRE BURKE mel­bourne­marathon.com.au/ race-week/race-day/

IF there’s ever been a poster girl for fit­ter, faster and more fab­u­lous in your 40s, it has to be Sinead Diver.

The Mel­bourne mum, 41, a hot tip to win the women’s race at the Med­ibank Mel­bourne Marathon to­mor­row, is op­ti­mistic about her prepa­ra­tion.

Diver be­lieves she is in good form to top her previous per­sonal best time of 2:31:37, posted in March 2017.

“I’m a lot fit­ter now than I was then so I’d like to im­prove on that,” she said.

“It would be nice to get the win, too, but that will de­pend on how the race pans out on the day,” she said.

The Med­ibank Mel­bourne Marathon fes­ti­val in­cludes five events of dif­fer­ent dis­tances, all fin­ish­ing at the MCG. Ex­pect road clo­sures around the ’G and St Kilda Rd and St Kilda junc­tion.
