Brisbane QUT Classic - Race Re-Cap
Author: Kelly Evans, Beyond The Medal Ambassador
"The QUT Classic Fun Run would have to be one of my favorite fun runs in Brisbane".
I had set out with the full intention of it being FUN! This week was a pull-back week in my marathon training.
Before the run my running partner and I decided to pre-load an extra 5km. When we got back we ran into heaps of the Girls Run This Town crew. Its always encouraging to run into your team at events.
7.20am rolled around and we were off!
Within the first km we decided that once we hit the bridge.. we were going to stop and grab a coffee to go!.. it was painful waiting for it to be made... but we put the fun in run. With coffee in hand we were off again.. funny as hell running with a lidded skinny cappuccino in hand. With many giggles from race official and cheers from other competitors as we passed.
We Finished it off then pushed.
10km with a coffee pause made for the best 1.10mins of fun running Ive ever done!
