This time last year I made the decision to run the City to Casino.
I made this pledge when I was not doing much running, or not enough to really get anywhere, and had no inclination to do other events.An 11km road race that is huge in Hobart. Popular. And fast. ~runs off to google last years results and then do the very bad thing if comparing myself to everyone else.
Well, how life changes. Within a 6 week period life changed for my husband and I and that’s when I started running in earnest. For me. Believe me, when you run for yourself, when you run for the right reasons. When you run to things, not away from them, it is so much more productive. And better for your health and mental well being.
I now have a fullish calendar of events and am pursuing my dream of running events all over the place. This year has become my year of running Tasmania. and some of the main events and distances. half and full marathon, a proper 10km, the massively well-known City to Casino (C2C), the Point to Pinnacle (P2P). The second ‘C’ and the first ‘P’ are one and the same place. Wrest Point Casino. And maybe, just maybe doing an Ultra with my husband.
My plan is to do one of each (at least) so I can decide on what sort of distance I prefer and feel comfortable with, and then follow that and be the best I can.
My next race is the City to Casino, with not so nice weather predicted. I am waiting my email for the last lot of preparations, and picking up my race bib and timing chips.
I had wanted to finish in 70 mins. Well, I know I can do it now. Not long now to know for sure. One week left…
Enjoy your week, see you at the finish line
