16 days to go!

With the Sydney Bridge Run over it is count-down to the World Masters Games now. Last Sunday was actually harder then I thought. Hard to get up at 4.30am to reach the start by 6am, harder to run all the way out to Leichhard and turn around to finish at the Opera House. The humidity and mass of people got to me and I started to fast ending at 10km under 45min but paying the price in the second half when the heat started kicking in. Saw quite a few runners pulling out with heat and exhaustion problems. I did not have a strong finish and crossed the line 1 minute over my target – 101 min for the 21 km. Well, lessons learned and in 2 weeks time it can only get better, right?
I not only hope to improve my time but also reach my other goal of helping 21 blind people to see again by raising enough money for The Fred Hollows Foundation – please check out my fundraiser page on www.gofundraise.com.au/run4vision and dig deep – every little cent helps!
Save training and hope to see you out in Homebush on Sunday, 11 October to cheer me on at the World Masters Games
Happy Feet
