Run Melbourne half-marathon

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.

Result? 1:44:02.

Couldn’t be happier. Sub-1:40 is definitely in sight for the next half.
