I ran my first half marathon at the prestigious Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon today. The day was perfect for running – there was a cool breeze but the sun also came out.
I did about 5 long runs prior to it (no more than 12km) so my training was very lacking! I also came back from Perth last night so I was fairly tired, however I was really happy with my sub 2hr time.
This run was one of the toughest things I’ve done in a while, it challenged me physically but also mentally! I don’t plan to do another half marathon anytime soon but it was a really great experience running around beautiful Sydney!
