Before then, today will be spent travelling down to Sydney with another amazing woman to go to a Taylor Swift concert! (Don't judge - she's awesome.) I know hey, one week it's UB40, the next I'm talking about T Swift. Spent many a roadtrip and karaoke session singing along loudly (and badly) to many of her songs, some of which really resonate with me and may have made me bawl during said sing-alongs at times. Not sure if I'll be the oldest concert-goer there by a good twenty years, but hey-ho - I'm excited!
So, as I'll be away tomorrow, this means I won't be able to go to the Heaton Gap trail run in the morning, nor the Central Coast half marathon, nor the Dune Buster challenge over at Stockton. Arrghh, so many great running events taking place tomorrow! Oh well. Another time for sure. Feeling a bit bereft of events lately as I have no official races coming up. Hmmm, what to train for then?! I did get an email about the Gold Coast Airport Marathon registration opening on December 8th so I will be jumping on that one for sure. Not sure if I'll be able to beat my time from last years' marathon (a pb too) of 3:36, but I have to give it a good try hey. After all, it will be my local race by that point, as I am moving up to the Gold Coast in late Feb. So, no excuse! I can even train for the race on the same roads that it will be held on. Watch this space. For now though, I will be running and training when I can, but the focus on the next couple of months will be on friends, family and travel. And I wouldn't change this for the world.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and week ahead, and just because it makes me happy, here are a few pictures from yesterday evening's 10km ish beach and trail run (same place as Sunday morning's run - Glenrock Reserve) as I finally made it to the Friday Fruit Loops session, and it was wonderful! Quite exhausted at the end of it though, as the 10km turned into 20ish km for me, what with the run there and back home again afterwards, phew...:
