Run Melbourne was on 15 July, with 5km, 10km and half marathon courses.
The aim, after rolling my ankle in early June, was a sub-1:45 half marathon. With my recovery progressing well, I thought that was realistic.
The weather was perfect and 26,000 people turned up. The course was crowded with a very slow start as we shuffled down St Kilda Rd, so it was never going to be a day for a PB.
Couldn’t be happier. Sub-1:40 is definitely in sight for the next half.
