Surf'T'Surf 2013 Race Report

I don't feel like doing a traditional race report, this is more a course review with my stats thrown in!
Basically this is a local 10k race on a course that is far from flat that has been run annually since 1982. The course record held by Brian Lewry is 30m30s and has stood for quite a few years now. This year a Mizuno sponsored runner came from Geelong and ran it in 30m49s for first place!

Training for Surf T Surf 10k and Cadbury Marathon

This is just an update to let people see how I am approaching the upcoming Cadbury Marathon in Hobart, given I have a local 10k race the weekend prior, it has presented a few challenges!

It's no joke, 2013 will be a challenge, I've never ran this many events ever before, but I do believe the training I've put myself through for Comrades has me more than prepared for the tough challenges ahead!

A summary of 2012 and the goals for 2013!

I don't want to bore you too much and since many other bloggers have already posted the same stuff, I just want to close off 2012 with a summary of my running achievements for the year!

I was impressed that @paulrunslong was able to cover this same information with a single tweet - well done mate, who needs a blog!

Total running distance for 2012: 2012 km

It became apparent that I would break 2000km for the year, which quickly changed to a goal of 2012, so I made a point to stop running for the year at that total exactly!

Here I am being all happy with my 2012th kilometer for the year!

Racing schedule changes... Wedding beats GCM!

So I recently had to drop the Gold Coast Marathon off my list for 2013. This is because my mate @beefysworld is getting married, and as much as I would love to do GCM, I love this guy too much to miss his wedding!!

This means I've had to shuffle my schedule again, now I will be taking on the Brisbane Marathon instead! Head on over to my schedule page for the latest details.

There were quite a few people I had planned to meet up or run with for GCM so I'm sorry we won't be able to this time around! As an aside, this gives me a chance to remind you that if you are planning on running or spectating at one of the events I will be at, please get in touch as I would love to catch up with you sometime around the event. I would like to organise a dinner the night prior to each race to catch up with twitter and Facebook friends.

First off will be Hobart, so if you are going to be around for the Cadbury Marathon and would like to meet up with me (and my cute little daughter) the evening prior to race day for some steak and chips - drop me a line on fb, or twitter or leave a comment below!
