On September 3rd I raced the Canberra Times 14km Fun Run- a cold and delayed start saw a slow time by me but was happy to run consistently enough to come away with the win!
Less than a week later I travelled down with the sapphire Coast crew to compete in the Surfcoast 50k. This had been my maiden 50k last year and I was looking forward to the new course! Bad weather had meant the course had to be changed to a slightly longer 52k but the day ended up being clear and perfect for running.
I had a cliff bar and kept repeating don’t walk don’t walk along the 5km slushy beach section and was so relieved the reach the final set of stairs to get off the sand and run through 50k knowing even with a wrong turn I had less than 3k to go!
The finish was a boost and I was shocked and stoked to find out I had won by almost 30minutes in a big over 4hrs 15.
The next week the body was not happy so I backed off for a few days and planned the next event.
With 18 weeks to my next marathon I geared my weeks and training to focus on running a pb there. Bewteeen now and then lots of hard work but also lots of local adventures and runs to be had!
Time to play 🙂
