Turned out for the half-marathon here on Sunday the 18th. A rolling course with a solid hill at the end. Apparently… The rolling course was all very well for the first 10K, but after that it was just a GRIND. Up and down the whole way. Mist and light rain. AND a headwind. And I distinctly remember two particularly tough climbs. One at around 15K, then the other (not quite as big, but definitely harder!) right at the very end. Kinda crazy as you climb this last hill, turn left, and then run twenty metres to the finish line. Little hard to do with any kind of style… Or maybe I just need to train more!
Much improved since the half-marathon in June though (my first in seven years) so was quite stoked about that. Looking forward to the next one!
