21km Blackmores Half Marathon

Before the run

Around 2 months ago, as part of my Muay Thai training plan I set to do a lot more running to lose weight and condition my lower body and legs. I started off at 4km and set out to try and aim to get that top around 10km.

After hitting 10km I have set my self new goals; to push to new limits and keep improving my running distance.

As part of this challenge I registered myself for the Blackmores Half Marathon which is a 21km iconic run here is Sydney. I’ve been training for the last 2 weeks and hope with dedication I’ll be able to run this and complete it.

Wish me good luck :)

After the run

Wow, what a run that was.. after all the preparation I pulled it off. Took me a total of 2 Hours and 14 Mins but it was the best run ever. The route was amazing and the weather was great. Cant wait for next years event. Here are my photos and finishing video.
