Just saying. So its like this, last year I was talked into doing the Barossa Half Marathon (21.5 km for those wondering!) by the promise of yummy Barossa food and wine at the end of it. 21 kilometres is a really long way! It really hurt. A lot. I ran with my sister, Roxy, and I suspect that with out her presence by my side I could not have done it. I had no intention of doing it again, until a friend sent out an email suggesting, lets do it again, we'll stay at the Tanunda Caravan Park again, indulge in the best of Barossa produce and generally have a blast. Oh and run 21km again!
I just registered this morning so there is no backing out now! Wish me luck!! On the plus side I am actually a little excited. I hope I can do it again, my training hasn't been as good this year, although Roxy and I did run 17km last weekend, so that's a good sign. And I am more than a little excited to spend some time with an awesome group of people. But especially to have that celebratory glass of bubbles after the race.
We're off camping this weekend, fingers crossed for nice weather. Hope you are doing something fun.
