The Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon is my first running race for the 2016 calendar. At the end of 2015 I decided to step up my running, but I had no idea about the best way to improve my time. Luckily I know many top runners from whom to seek advice. Where else to turn to but my favourite running group, HuRTS?
Once again, I find myself in the race that started it all for me. The Corporate Triathlon was my first ever triathlon event, some years ago. This is my second attempt at one of the most prestigious race locations in Australia. It is not often that you get to swim with the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge as the view.
First run for Sydney Striders for 2016 is at Homebush, Olympic Park. This is a very close race to home but I've decided not to participate in this event due to "being soft", as some say, honest truth is that my legs were just too tired from a big week of running and I have plans to do some mountain bike training. Instead of going out and smashing myself for 10Km, I did the photo duty for the day, here are some of the photos from the run.
