Ah! Sun! : )
The attraction of flying up to the Sunshine Coast for the ANZAC Day long weekend to see my twin brother and take a trot along the coast was too enticing, especially with Melbourne heading towards icy morning runs. The course for the Noosa half marathon is fast and flat, running along the foreshore for a nice part of it. The winner completed the race in an impressive 69 minutes!!
After the race, I waited for my brother to finish the 10k run, and then we strolled down to Main Beach, Noosa to body surf in our running gear. Great way to cool down/stretch out! I can see why people like to holiday or retire here!
My net time: 1:52.:03
My average net pace: 5:18 mins/km
My net position:
▪ overall: 575 out of 1117
▪ gender: 191 out of 550
▪ division (F40-44): 35 out of 92
This was my first official sub-2 hour half marathon, so I was pretty happy with my time!
Think I might come back and do this one again next year, even if only to run in a singlet in mid-Autumn!
