This is what it is all about ... being a part of this great Melbourne event.

Week 1 Redux (9-15 Feb)

Week 1 and what began with a facebook request has kick started a marathon campaign.

Just two runs this week, both in races.The first one was an 8km at the Melbourne Zoo as part of the Super Sunset Series on Wednesday night. I took this very easy and had plenty left in the tank.

The second run was on Sunday at the Gatorade Triathlon at Elwood. This one was a 5km which I ran hard in 23.29min. My right calf was a little sore after this one.

But a good week to kick things off.

Week 1 total: 2 runs for 13.07 km in 1:02.59 hrs.

How it started

Received this note on facebook today from a running colleague Kim:

Want to run the marathon in Sept/Oct and I need someone to coach me! Are you up for a run & a catch up in the next couple of weeks...i could meet you at the tan for old times sake! K

Decided the best thing to do was to sign up for the marathon myself too. After all, been looking for an excuse to run more for a year or two now.

What have I done?
