Disappointment



My next challenge was a 2nd half marathon. And for some reason I thought that Wellington, in winter would be a good choice. Myself and 2 friends went drove down to attempt the harbour capitol half marathon.

If I'm honest with myself I know that my training suffered following the northern crossing, so I was not expecting to set the world on fire.

However, once again in nasty, cold, wet conditions, I was still disappointed with my result. Whilst I was able to finish (and I still think that finishing is something to be proud of) I ran 2hr 30 min. 10 minutes slower than I ran in Kerikeri last year.

I guess this means I will have to go back and do another until I'm happy with my result.
