While the weather was very nice I'll just say that combining hills with a head cold isn't much fun. Provisional results are in and considering how crap I was feeling last night a pretty good time in 43:14 (Placing me 21st out of 69 in my group 30-39 Men. Getting into the top third of the field which is something I wouldn't have thought a year ago when I was struggling to run longer than 5 minutes at a time).
Aside from the hills the most interesting part of this run was the coastal walkway with the tide coming in. I think this was a slight change from last years run auckland and therefore the course was probably only around 9.4km. Still Run Auckland Race 1 was about 10.5km so I guess it evens out.
Whilst I didn't have a camera with me today here is a good photo I found on Flickr. The coastal walkway is the stretch on the right.
Run Auckland Race 5 is almost a month away and I'm going to train hard out for this. The half is then shortly after on 13 July.
