After the Gold Rush
The photo shows me (yellow singlet) after the finish of the half in 1995, looking a bit dazed and tired. I'd been running with Raewyn Blair (2510) during the race and she out-sprinted me to the finish. Although not a PB, I was fairly happy with the run. I wrote in the diary: "Great result, course PB. 1st k 3:38, last 3:55. Early start was hard, no warm-up. Good conditions, 12°C, light breeze. Training shoes. 83 minutes may have been possible. 5k splits - 19:33, 19:45, 19:54, 20:02".
I'm catching up with some old (and ancient) friends on the weekend — we'll be eating, drinking, being merry, and running. See you all next week!
