Thanks fellas - a couple months ago having not done a skerrick of exercise for 2 or 3 years I thought doing this would be impossible! :p

Hehe half the point of doing this stuff is so I can continue to lead my unhealthy lifestyle - just offsets it a bit. :p

Official time 1 hour 20 mins 5 secs.

Hardly a glory shot - don't think I'll bother paying $20 bucks for the print.

Yeah you probably don't want the pic showing some old dude in a daggy hat beating you.   :p

(but congrats - I know I couldn't do it)

hehe I think like 7,000 people beat me so it's not anything particularly impressive - just stoked that I went from a completely sedentary lifestyle to being able to run 7km without a break in under two months.  I haven't changed my meat-and-fat diet nor cut back on the boozing/partying, only running a couple times a week and occasional upper body stuff.

Holy crap - the City to Bay is only 13 days away :eek:

Ditto - except only 10 days :eek: 

Was alerted to this yesterday when a friend asked if I was reg'd yet cos online entries closed already :waah:  (she gets sponsorship through the Cult de Santos)

That's 12km - I have no chance of that at the moment...  Man - gunna have to up the training over the next couple weeks, still hovering around 93kg (way too much socialising/drinking lately) so gotta drop another 4 or 5kg to really be able to run decent.

Weighed in at 92.7kg yesterday morning, again felt impossible to be able to get up to pace in the time alotted so thought I'd go for a run tonight, however I somehow took a detour and got caught up in just running and before I knew it I was going Parkside-Burnside Village-Toorak Gardens-Norwood-Kent Town-City...

7.5km all up, only walked a couple hundred metres of it - plus there's a bunch of mandated rest points (traffic lights) along the way, and feel pretty decent with some reserve afterward so I think I'm in reasonable shape to tackle the 12km.

Yeah I know it's not a huge distance - but I have a largely sitting-on-my-arse nerdy lifestyle with lots of "bad" food and binge drinking and limited dedicated exercise. :D  I did 1hr:20min last year, aiming for 1:10 this year.
