Final of the short course series at Joburg zoo.
I was seeded and had 6 people behind me. Up to no.8 I made a few minor mistakes but was running well. I took the longer but less complicated route choice to no.8. It was a long leg and it was uphill so I started hurting. My legs felt good but I was breathing heavily. I managed to catch Zoe but only passed her at 15. I lost concentration on the way to 9 when all the seeded men came flying past and 12 didn't go as planned. I managed to run at a good pace the rest of the way without my lungs exploding and came 6th. Tania won in 21mins, Salome was 2nd, Michele 3rd then Lisa and Cindy. Finished the series in 3rd place out of the junior girls.
