Woohoo, did my first half marathon yesterday and it was brilliant! I gave the course a wee bit too much credit and set out quite slow over the first few kms, but picked it up from 8km to get a time of 2hr 10m. I reckon next year i can break the 2 hr mark on that course for sure. People had been going on about the harbour bridge being tough but i found the roads of the north shore from 8-12km harder. I'd only run 16km before the race the week before, but it's amazing how far adrenalin gets you on the day.
4am start, ferry to devonport at 5.30 and race start at 6.30. After the race, annabel, tommy and i went house hunting and by 7pm i collapsed. Have just woken up 13 hours later! Knees are suffering a wee bit...
