Today I ran the SMH Half Marathon. I previous posted about this and the fundraising that we have been doing, including a leg wax. Today was all about the onesie; Yury, Stu and I started and finished the half marathon together in a respectable 1:54. Our aim was simply to complete it without dehydrating as it was a rather warm day. As a bonus Sophie, the founder of Running For Premature Babies, gave us balloons to carry around with us for the race; Yury lost his almost straight away, but somehow Stu and I managed to cross the line with them still intact.
The route itself was nice, not quite on a par with Blackmore’s as it doesn’t cross the Harbour Bridge or finish at the Opera House but a scenic route through Darling Harbour and the CBD nonetheless. Furthermore, it’s a very flat race, so had we been pushing it then it’s certainly an opportunity for a PB. It’s now been a year since my last running related injury, so despite the recent bad press about Vibram Five Fingers, I remain much less injury-proned than when running in trainers.
If you would like to donate to my fundraising cause, then you can do so here.
