The Beginning

June 3, 2018 – Albany, Western Australia. Elleker Half Marathon.

I wasn’t ready for this. I hadn’t really prepared at all. And you just don’t decide to run a half marathon! But I’d paid my fee and it gave me an excuse to see my 90 year old dad.

We arrived late. I didn’t have a great warm up. We headed off for the 21.1km. But even without proper preparation it was a good run on a beautiful winter’s day. No personal best but also nothing that indicated what was about to come.

In other news…

My wife, who never runs, came second in her event, winning fifty dollars! 🙄
