Run race 1:42:23 
Googong Half Marathon - This is the third time I've done this race, and after a great run last year, I wasn't quite sure how I would go this year. Quite a good turnout on such a cold morning, especially a good crowd of cockies, and as usual it was good fun but a really hard race. I made sure I warmed up properly, which meant I felt comfortable in shorts and t-shirt at the start. Miss Jones, robw and devil were off like lightning and I also started strongly and kept pace with acejase and grantm for the first little loop. Got stronger on the hilly bits, and overtook a few people, then just tried to stay strong until halfway. Made sure I ran hard on the downhills, too. At halfway I was at about 53:30, so stopped for a drink, then pushed hard up the hill until the dam was in view, and cruised a bit of the downhill there. Tried to hang tough on the way home, but died a bit on the last two hills. It would have been nice to have a surge at the end but I was running at my limits on the flat. Overall, it was a good race, and I managed to do a 37 second PB over last year. Hooray for me. Some top runs by the other cockies too, I think most people did PBs! Good work.
