Congratulations on the run, when I heard one of my mates was doing this I thought something like this would be a great idea. I'm not sure what I'll participate in exactly but something along these lines would be good for someone that used to think he had asthma every time that he ran :?

Hey Donk you should definitely enter in a fun run. It's a form of self gratification knowing you can run the distance as a result of your fantastic transformation. With all that running you do, you'll be able to handle it without an asthma induced attacks :wink:

Yes, you should. Afterwards, I felt like crying from relief and the acheivement of just finishing. When I first started running a couple years back I could hardly even make 30 secs without collapsing and I thought "I'll never be able to do this, ever!" but just all those memories came flooding back and I felt this proud sense of accomplishment that I ran one and a half hours without stopping. Its such a great feeling!! ANyone can do it!! :D :D PLus, all the people along the street clapping and cheering you on really made you want to keep going. AT the end, I even felt like I had more in me. Even though today I am a bit stiff in the legs. Next goal for me is a half marathon (not for a long time though!)
Liz :D

Hey Liz, I'm up for a half marathon, too. Have decided to train for the Melbourne Marathon in October and will do the half. I will also enter the Mother's Day Classic in May and the Run to the G in June and I'm sure I'll squeeze some smaller races in there, too.

Hey Donk, I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the big race and I can't wait to do it again. I put it off for a long time because I didn't know what to expect, the etiquette of it all etc. but it was well organised and super easy and lots of fun! You should do it for sure and now you're doing pretty big ks so a 5km or even a 10km race would be OK. There's no way I would've run that entire distance if I got out there on my own on a Sunday morning. It was the event that really pushed me to go harder and longer.

BTW, my official finish time was 1:43:35. I'd love to do a half marathon in that time by the end of the year.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

How long is a half marathon?

Sounds great, I bet you were SO proud. I'm planning on running the City to Surf here in perth in 2008, and I'm looking forward to it :D

Good on you Mandie. It will be good to be part of a big and famous event. How far is the City to Surf in Perth? (hey, that rhymes!)

A half marathon is 21.1km.

Lol it does rhyme!

It's 12km. I've done it twice, but only walking. I think this year I will try to do it walking with some jogging periods, and my goal is to run it next year without stopping!

That's a great goal, Mandie. I'm sure you'll be running it all the way next year :) And as for this year, well, who knows? You might get carried away by the event like I did! :)
