If you don’t know me by now….

…I’ve jumped straight back on the horse and signed up for the Melbourne Marathon half. I can hardly walk at the moment but it seems only right to set my sights on another goal that’s 12 weeks out.

I’m a glutton for punishment but without goals or targets I’d never take another step-well that’s not true, I love running but only when I’m injury free.

I’ll stick my neck out here and say that this will be a new PB – I will be prepared and I will train sensibly to ensure that I finish the race strongly and without any pain.

My bib number is 10440 – I’m guessing that I’m the 440th entrant for the half.

No running this week, I have an osteo appointment tomorrow and I’ll start off with a few 5-6k runs next week.

    I believe it, the goal of the half will motivate you to get better!

    Yeah, and the game with Brazil… I have never seen such a poor excuse for a soccer team ever… I am amazed they are allowed to get away with all that nonsense!

    $85 for a half marathon! That’s a bit steep.
