It's City2Surf tomorrow. Last year I did really well (just over 100 minutes) and it is unfortunate that I did not train for this year's race as they have implemented timing chips this year!! The reason why this is so great, is that last year (and I imagine previous years) it took 15 minutes to get to the start line from where you had lined up! That meant, that 15 minutes was added onto your time. This year, your timing chip starts timing when you cross the start line!!!!! Such a brilliant idea! Hopefully they like using the timing chips so that when I run next year I will be able to get into one of the top two groups.
This year I will be running the first 5-odd km and then walking with The Boy's sister. I don't expect a good time, but it'll be good to get back into the exercise! Maybe the slowness of our pace will give me the kick up the bum that I need!!
