The Bridge Run 2010
I did the 9km Bridge Run. All the way without a pause.
The Cliffy Young shuffler pulled a 65 minute time.
Happy to have made it (can't you tell by the look of sheer delight on my face in this picture?)
Happy that my 3 weeks of cold and 'flu did not deter me (although I may have left my left lung in Lane 4 of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Sorry if you tripped on it.)
Happy that the Geege and I did it together (although his time was closer to 55 mins).
I learnt a lot about running during the race. Things like, black T-shirts and crisp Spring mornings are not a great combination. And drinking when running really does give you a stitch. And I probably shouldn't have had a couple of glasses of wine the night before a race. And some women really do wear make-up all the time (even when they are running). And there is a thing called 'glamour running wear'. The important things about running.
So where to from here?
I'm totally up for the next challenge. I think there is a 10km run in November that I could train for. But that will do me, distance wise. While there seems to be a trend that every man and his dog needs to complete a marathon or a half marathon (Pikermi). This old duck aint buying into it.
There is only so much shuffling this gal can do.
Did you take part in the festivities? How did you go? Maybe next year?
