|Easily the biggest trophy I've ever won!|
The last 5km were very slow and I felt very flat. I knew that this was not going to be a great time and in my head thought it was a 2:50 run, well at least it felt that way. Entering the finish line I spotted the clock at 2:40 and seconds and was amazed. For the way I was feeling from so early on in the race too, I was a happy man. My BIG goal for the next little while is to get my marathon under 2:30. This race was a great confidence builder and I really think that if I focus, train and taper for another race in a couple of months time properly I can shed 10 minutes off this time and achieve this aim.
The public holiday the next day gave all the Woodies the opportunity to let their hair down and the celebrations went on into the night. Rebecca, another Woodie, won the major lucky draw prize of a TV/DVD combo and is going to raffle it on her Mt Kilimanjaro fundraising night (for charity).
A great event, a throwback to the old days of racing and wonderfully organised by the Trial Bay Tri Club. This type of event brings the whole community together.
