City2Surf... off my bucket list!

I completed a 14k chariity run today.

I started a fair way back in the field of 85000 but i damn well ran the whole way! Feeling a bit proud as part of the course (about 6k mark) is called Heartbreak Hill, and i concur with that opinion as it is a very long and steep incline.. maybe a bit over a kilometre. I was inspired by an older gent who could have been about 70 and i thought 'if he can do it so can I'.

I finished in a good time 86.55, which equates to about 6.2minutes per kilometre. I was a bit tired afterwards and very hungry but proud of my efforts too. A good indicator for my half marathon coming up in September.

Happy running everyone.
