Two of my running friends Karie and Samaiya will be tackling their first marathon this weekend at the Goldcoast Airport Marathon and I’m so excited for them. They have both done a lot of hard work to and put in countless hours of training to get to this point and the marathon is purely the victory lap.

I wish them both the very best of luck, and everyone else who is competing up on the Goldcoast this weekend. I know you’re all going to have a blast and I can’t wait to hear all about it!

As for me, this weekend I will be taking on the 32km Shoalhaven King of the Mountain course which will be my longest run before some tapering in the lead up to the M7 Marathon next month.

The race starts at 9am and is about a 2 hours drive from home so it’s going to be an early start again on Sunday, which means early to be on Saturday night for me. I am also thinking that i should carb load a little before this one too, the course profile doesn’t look easy.
