Whats Up!!

Saturday Session

Tomorrow's Run Session will be leaving from the New Farm Park rotunda!!

When: Saturday 29 Jun
Time: 6am-8am
What: with GC only a week away, this is a last taper opportunity.
Meet at 6am for your preferred distance. Matty C is doing a 50min run followed by a flat Park Run at 7am. So meet him at 6am at Rotunda or 6:50am at the Powerhouse for Park Run. Finishing up with Park run is a great way to get those legs ready to roll for next weekend!
Cost: $2
I am sure there will be breaky afterwards too!

Tough Mudders will be heading to D'aguliar National Park for a 2 hour gruelling goal event, including obstacles, trail running and heaps more!!!! Game On!

Gold Coast Race Packs
I will be collecting all individual race packs for those who joined the Brisbane Run Squad this Sunday 30th June.

To collect your packs from me, come to training Monday or Wednesday night, or arrange to pick them up Saturday or Sunday at the coast.

Gold Coast PARTY!!
As always there will be a post GC Party on Marine Parade.

I will email you all with the details soon. A great way to celebrate achievements and to get a bit of down time!

Happy Running

BRS on Tour Wrap Up....Saturday Session & our famous ladies!

BRS On Tour Wrap UP

What a week!! We had a blast!

After a loooong flight arriving at 4am Brisbane Time, we had a quick kip, then up nice and early on the bus for our Marathon Course Inspection tour!  Quite quickly it hit us how darn hot it this race was going to be.

We registered, hit the expo, tried some Thai espresso then off for a reccy run of our own to really understand the conditions we were going to be dealing with.

On our 20min reccy run we literally ran into an Elephant on the path.....AMAZING! this was looking up!
We 'dominated' the pasta party which was amazing, then back to the hotel rooms for an early bed time.

Keeters and Will's marathon started at 4:30am, so they were on the bus with Andrew, Matt and I by 4am.
After 500m warm up at 4am in morning Keeters was sweating bullets! The next minute they were gone, off on their 42km, 90% humidity, undulating marathon!

6am - the half marathoners - Jill, myself, Matt, and Andrew were kicking off for what has got to be one of the toughest 1/2 marathons we have ever done!

6:30am - Karen our 10km entrant kicked off, braving the heat and rain.

Proud to say that ALL BRSers finished in style, giving a last effort over the line with big smiles on their faces.
Recovery was unusual.....Food consisted of fried rice and congree with fried shallots, chilli flakes and chilli sauce, really after a marathon??? the free massage was pretty good though.

Chat to any of the On Tour runners for their account of the race, they all have interesting and fun stories how they got through it!

Recovery started early, a few celebratory drinks in Jill's room, then to the non-existent after party! we were 3 hours late, I think we missed it!
We headed out for our own after party, which I must admit, finished a lot earlier than any of us would have thought! the Bed was calling us

The next 5 days of recovery......well that stays on TOUR!!! Needless to say we enjoyed the local beverages, massages, shopping, food, pool, and entertainment!
