Marathon training, races, Running

Almost there…

It’s just four weeks til the first HM I’m running this year. 🙂

From the tropic heat of last week (30+ C) to the mid-winter rains of this week (<5 C) it’s an interesting time to train for an event. I’ve had to dig out my thermal wear from storage! 😮

Until June 22, this is my background to make sure I don’t stay behind my laptop and get out from under my blankets and away from my warm cuppa tea and go out there and RUN.


Not really my first, but…


Despite that achy ankle and iffy knee.

By the way. I just realised that this year, my finishing position was the same as my race number last — 619 — for the same race. 😮 Weird, right?

I’m almost done with classes as well. 🙂 Just a week to go until the devils (just kidding, love them, really) are off to their summer break. I still have summer school and paperwork til the June 20, but it’s kind of different from regular classes. Plus, I get to start biking to work if it gets reasonably warm outside again.

Next week it’s gonna be various exams and trips with my students, so in honor of the last days of classes, I’ve been getting cards wishing me a happy summer from the kids I don’t get to see next week anymore… 🙂



And a couple of days off from exercise, when I’ll be on a ship to Sweden with my twenty 16-year-olds. Yikes! I predict a couple of sleepless nights.

Right. I really need to get out there and freeze now. 😉
