Our first half marathon…Outsurance Gun Run!

The Outsurance Gun Run began at 7am sharp outside the Cape Town Stadium. It was awesome to see the amount of Embarkers at the start, a lot of them running their first half marathon (21.1km). I saw a few of them before the race but the reception was not all that pleasant, as most were complaining about sore legs from the 4h ride I made them do yesterday 🙂 ! But its all in the quest of a great race at half ironman 70.3 in January, so the smiles were certainly there at the finish of the run. We had a stunning day in Cape Town today, very little wind and clear summer skies. The wind the day before sure did blow the summer in.

So now that this big weekend is over the Embarkers can look forward to an easy week of relaxing and recovering. We are gearing up for Slanghoek Triathlon on the 27th Oct. This is a 1200m swim, 50km bike and 12km run, so its a good challenge for Block 4! Have a great relaxing week and congratulations on a well deserved rest week coming up.
