With five weeks to go until the torturous 14 kilometer marathon known as the City 2 Surf, it’s been on my list of things to do for a few years and this time I’m actually going to do it. The proof is below, the bib came today and I’m in the Westpac Yellow group, i.e. the one for walkers and joggers. Probably should have gone into the blue group looking back now but I’m just starting out so Yellow will have to do.
Bib number is 53973, nothing special or fancy about it but I’m aiming for a sub 90 minute time and hopefully if I can keep up my training at the gym, I should be able to make it. I’m currently quite confident of making it the whole way without walking, whether or not I can maintain an average speed of just over 9km/h over the treacherous heartbreak hill will remain unknown.
Hope everyone else doing the run has been preparing for it, it should be a blast :D.
