This third time I’ve run this race. My lead up to this race was not the greatest to be honest I’ve only run 4 or 5 times since completing the Run Melbourne, Half Marathon in July, I have been working on bike and gym work instead.
This morning was not a cold morning but it was overcast and there was a wind blowing around 10km from North / West perfect conditions for running. After parking the car I saw an old friend Steph. I yelled out a big hi then I did my warm up run from the car to the start line followed by some stretching then lined up ready to start. Once the race started I headed off down Beach road towards Sandringham my pace was fast an strong I felt good. At the turn around I noticed a bit of a head wind as we headed back towards Brighton.
On the way back I saw a few Tri Alliance gals & guys out on their Half Marathon, waves and thumbs up were the order of business.
As I came past the Start/Finish line we needed to head up towards Dendy street and turn around again to head towards the finish line. I crossed the line in 54m 08s
Not bad with next to no training.
