Running race 38:54  8.9 km (4:22 / km)
Blackmores Running Festival Bridge Run. The first 1.5km was spent weaving through people as to be expected I guess, but everyone went relatively fast at the start so I don't think it made too much of a difference. Didn't notice the gradual climb in the early kms and then there was a lot of flat and downhill until about 2.5km to go, so it was a pretty fast course. Felt strong on the hills near the end and I was catching people up them so I think that helped mentally. Expected to have an extra loop though so I didn't realise when i was really close to the finish, pretty annoying because I definitely shouldve been pushing harder there! I feel like I was pretty comfortable for it all though and wanted to do under 41, so I'm really happy. Especially after the footy last night and a shocking nights sleep of about 4hours. Did enjoy some freebies at the finish too ;) Will definitely want to do this again, my top pick of races if I ever want to have a good crack at a marathon or a half too I think!
