Yep, I'm going to do Mission 2 today. I saw this advertised online somewhere and just had to get it. I didn't use GPS the first time round, so I've yet to experience a Zombie chase. Today is going to be my fifth consecutive day running (trying a short running streak out) so I'm not exactly sure how good I'll be. Am so in love with this app!
Hey everyone. My brother and I stayed at a great hostel called Sunshine Hose (or something like that) at Innsbruscker platz.
My first marathon; 5:19:41 . Wish I'd trained harder; my longest run was 9 miles and up to 26km I was on track for a 5 hour/sub 5. But then my legs were worn out and I had to do short walk breaks. Can't wait to get the trainers on and get faster!
I did a PB of 2hours 19mins...according to my GPS. My timing chip flew off at mile 12, so if you saw a sweaty girl swearing under the archway near there, that was me.
Fantastically run, don't mind paying out if it means I get powerade and then Starmix, crisps, museli and water while and after I run. Music wasn't always that good, some stations were just DJs. Fantastic atmosphere and if I can afford to I will be running this again!
The wind was ridiculously strong! It was my first time running anything over 8 miles, but I ran out of steam at mile 9. The hills were tough, especially that one at mile 10, and the wind was insane. I was stood thinking I should have worn more than a long-sleeve top at the start but soon got warm, only to be frozen at the end.
I did 2 hr 23 (500th out of 509! haha) but I feel pretty good about finishing it, plus I finished it under 2 hr 30, which is what I'd thought was a reasonable time. It looked like it was more of a club runners race than an amatuers, so I don't feel so bad about how I placed.
