A Marathon Turn
Where are we? Hobart, Tas.
Distance: 6.3 km
Time: 38' 23"
Rate: 6'05" per km
Weather: sunny !!, temp 18 degrees, humidity 55%, wind NW 20 kmph
Week: 6.3 km, March: 24.1 km, Year: 743.05 km
First run in 10 days, this time on a different island. Finally the rain & wind have stopped. And so have we slowed down the pace. We are staying for some time now at my mother-in-law's place in Hobart, the van parked in the back yard.
We are not tourists at the best of time, more long term travellers, not much sight seeing for us to do in Hobart. Much has changed since I lived in Hobart in the 1970's for 8 years, the traffic is horrible, only a couple of main roads to handle more traffic than Canberra.
A sunny morning & not much happening allowed me the chance to get out. I ran towards the Bowen bridge, along a nice dirt track near the edge of the Derwent River coming out behind the Elwick Racecourse.
Heading back towards the start, I see a sign on the road that had "M turn". This is where the marathon turns after going behind the Entertainment Centre & the horse racing track. All this is very familiar territory. Next year's Cadbury marathon, may be not!
The Bruny Is trip has been postponed due to the rough weather, a 45 minute open ferry ride across Storm Bay is not for the faint hearted on a bad day. So we think a one day trip may be next week will have to do.
Otherwise, the running will need to ramp up, or the shorts and tops won't fit.
