Races

First race – 30km Bay to Bay

What a shocker! Despite the fact that I haven’t actually been on a training plan since September I managed to scrape a moderately respectable 2:58:11. Not bad considering the diet of alcoholic beverages, Indian takeaways and god knows what else I’ve been packing away over the holidays. One of my favourite races of the year and also one of our club races. Ocean Basket also sponsored this year, but sadly no fish and chips at the end.
