City 2 Surf – Done!

Rowena:- “I competed in the City 2 Surf fun run on Sunday 8 August…”

…”The night before I made my ‘mega fried rice’ using brown rice. I had some homemade carrot cake for dessert and was in bed by 9pm.

Sunday morning was a bit chilly but the day turned out to be beautiful and sunny. There was a carnival atmosphere along the way with people watching from their verandas, with one pub having a band playing on their roof while all the runners went by. Some truly inspiring people run the race and it is amazing to see.

The course is 14 kms long. I set myself a personal goal to finish in 90 minutes. The official results are published in the Sydney Sun Herald and it was a really exciting feeling today buying the paper and looking up my official finish time. A very respectable 97 minutes and 30 seconds! Not too bad for a first attempt! This time was just short of my personal target but gives me plenty of room for improvement next year…

A great day and a great sense of achievement!”

Julia:-”Well done Rowena! Good job Sis!!!”
