SMH Half Marathon 2018

Recommended Posts

10 years ago this race was my first Half Marathon

This time it's my first race since Ironman Aus 2015 :o

The aim will to not do a personal worst was my first in 2018

Bitter sweet race as it was meant to be my Wife's first real Half Mara in a build up to her doing the Sydney full Marathon (and me a 10th Anniversary Marathon) later in the year. Unfortunately it's just me with my Wife getting a stress fracture in her hip forcing her out.

Anyone else doing it?

Yeah she's pretty bummed, I'm sure you know the feeling!

Ouchie! Hope she gets back out there eventually.

I’m not doing it but three of my runners are. All three will PB, one guy by about 12-15mins (will drop to about 85mins)  see some of you out there early in the AM  

My first half back will be SMH. Coastal Classic, Sydney 10k (July one), city to surf and Queenstown Marathon will see out the year. I decided I’m giving up competing if I can’t get some motivation to train and improve.

Christ that hurt. A lot. Very early. But I hung on and made my stretch goal, so super super chuffed 🙂

How did you go nealo?

Good thanks Bogfrog, glad you got your stretch goal.

Went out in a hope of 1:44:30

Stuffed up starting my watch tacking my jumper off at the start line I think, after starting it at the start line (I think I actually stopped it), I started it again 1-200m down the road. 1st km 9:30 WTF? That’s when I knew I’d stuffed it. 

Ran the whole race by feel and came away with 1:44:27 😂🤷‍♂️🤗🤓🤓
