Day 254: 11 September 2011

Shot on iPhone 4.

 

So, today Anna, Meg and I, along with about 50,000 of our closest friends, took part in the Bridge to Brisbane fun run, the major fun run event in Brisbane in terms of numbers. Anna did a PB in the 10km and, in a personal milestone, ran the full 10km. I didn't do a 10km PB (about 2 minutes slower than last year), but my time of 53:16 was okay considering I haven't been running much lately. And Meg and I walked the 5km in 53:18, which I think was a great effort for little legs. We all love the event - but after getting up at 3.30am, doing the 10km and 5km and then coming home to shovel dirt and do tip runs PLUS an impromptu soccer game down the park in the arvo - well, I'm about to fall asleep and it's 7.40pm. I'm a day behind on comments already but promised to catch up by tomorrow night.

 

Just to explain this set: top left you can see the queue of people in front of me at the start. Top right and bottom left are the people enjoying the water mist being fanned on them at the finish, And bottom right are just some runners approaching the finish line.
