City to SurfOn the last weekend in August, Lanette, Peter and I finished what we started training for months ago for the Perth City to Surf races.  I completed the 42km marathon (5 hrs 23 min), Peter completed his half marathon (2 hrs 10 minutes) and Lanette finished her 12km walk.

At the half-way mark, I was exactly on my pace of 7 minutes per km (5 hour pace), but had to grapple with strong calf cramps throughout the final 24 km.  I finished strong though.  Disappointed that I didn't feel the experience of "hitting the wall" (must have been running to slow!).  Recovery was swift and uneventful.  By the end of the week I was playing a pickup basketball game, softball playoff game (5 for 6 hitting) and went bowling.
