2014 City 2 Surf

This year I finished my 8th City2Surf in a row and came away with my second fastest time. And I am very happy with that time considering that it was off the back of a tough 5hr trail run the day before.

We had a whole crew from the UNSW CHeBA (Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing) Team there walking/running the course, followed by a bbq get together at the end to celebrate. One of the team members has entered the race in every year of it’s history, what an honour!

My friend Jess and I had some food & drinks after the race too. I didn’t realise how red my face was until i saw this photo!!

And here I am with our wonderful CHeBA organiser Heidi Mitchell, apparently I beat her by 4 seconds, hilarious!!


Happy Running 🙂


2014 Sutherland2Surf

It was a very cold start on Sunday for the 11km Sutherland2Surf and the rain was threatening to dampen our spirits as Megs and I took our position near the Start line.


Two years ago I ran it in 1 hour 3 mins, and last year I ran it with one of my PT client in 1 hour 20 mins, it had been her first race ever and she ran the whole way with a big grin on her face. I was so proud of her when we crossed the finish line last year, and I was even happier she was also back this year to give it another try and run by herself.

I was aiming to get under the 1 hour mark and after pushing myself much harder than I probably should have (as I have a marathon next weekend) I crossed the finish line in about 55 minutes. I forgot to stop my Garmin and results aren’t up yet so will have to let you know the official time when I get it (and update this post).

The race was most enjoyable once I warmed up and got my comfortable in my rhythm. And it was great to see so many people taking on the challenge. My client also got a new PB by 3 minutes, what a legend – go Tishy!!

Happy Running 🙂
