How Many Legs Does Jelly Have?
Some of us had a recent weekend in Melbourne. 12 ferals in fact that were variously signed up for the 10km run, the half marathon and the marathon. For all four of us that completed the 21km half marathon distance Melbourne was a first. Di Keenan's only comparable experience of an out of town event is the City2Surf and she says she found the Melbourne Half had more of a relaxed feel and that it was awesome running into the MCG. Lyn, Nicole and I all felt the same. Running through the tunnel and then out into that great open space (not to a roaring crowd but oh well) was a memorable finale especially when the legs had turned to jelly coming off the bridge leading into the MCG. Nicole said she liked running past Melbourne's historical buildings which made me wonder what I was looking at as I didn't even notice. The run course is a bit similar to that of the 15k City2Sea run which I have completed 4 years running now. Not overly scenic but the finish made it memorable. Any excuse for a weekend in Melbourne. Sandra Altin completed the 10km run which was an achievement but so far as I know she has no time to show for it as she seemed to have dropped out of the system. Well done anyway. We know you were there. My daughter also ran the 10km with a friend, her first attempt at that distance. She never was a feral but now she's a runner.
