Race Review: Run For Russ 2012

The Ace Radio Wimmera Grampians heart challenge aka Run For Russ was my 4th ‘fun run’ for the year.

  1.  Run for the kids (5.2km)
  2.  Run the Gap (11.5km)
  3.  Run Melbourne (21.1km)
  4.  Run for Rus (10km)

The best part about it was that I didn’t have to go far.  Just a short walk from my house to the event site. WIN!

Srun for russo when they said registration would be open between 7.15 & 8.15am, we walked over got my number (4) and then walked back home to 1. keep warm, and 2. kill some time.

The race was suppose to start at 9am, but alas it didn’t start until 9.30am. I’m not too sure how many entered in the 10km but it wasn’t as many as the 5km run or the 5km walk.

I had aimed to run the 10km in under 54mins (so 53.59). So I set my garmin pace for 5.18min that would get me a 53min time.

Well as you can see —>Run For Russ by matilda_i at Garmin Connect – Details. <—

I did my 10km run (er 9.79km) in 50.56, so WIN for me. 200 meters is a given that I would get my sub 54 time.

So yay for me a new pb.  Can’t wait to do my next ‘fun run’ – Run Ballarat
