FYBF – How to run the City2Surf…and survive

You read all about it last week. And today, I’m here to say I survived it….and vlogged about it.

Yes, my dear Floggers…here is the fun, the tough and the not so pretty of last week’s City2Surf.

Sadly, I didn’t beat my PBT. Meh.

Apparently, I needed to be injured and limping like I was last year to do that…Go figure.


Still an awesome day. And as every year, I was left going home…a little sore but overwhelmingly inspired.

Next year, I’m going to start up an FYBF group to run for a charity.

Who’s with me??? (Yes, I’m lookin’ at you…)

    You looked sensational after 14kms . I think a team of bloggers each running for our favourite charity would be an awesome idea. We can dress up ; ) and pair up with a pace or walking partner and party at the finish line.

    Well done Grace (and Trish) (and all that took part really) I love the idea of a bloggers running group. Best I start saving to make it down there, mind you wouldn’t it be great if Brenda could change the dates of DPCON13 so that it was close to the city to surf so I only needed to save for one ticket down there ;0)

    Hi Grace,
    Oh dear it would appear I’ve left my RUN too late….for any kind of C2S..but let me tell you a little story.
    In the 1990s the City to Surf Primary School kids group was dominated by the Mt Druitt area Primary School where I was deputy. The teachers there used running, and getting fit as a terrific motivator for kids, and had a running club. Then the teachers, and the selected kids would do the city to surf. I was always so proud of the dedication of public school teachers who gave up afternoons and weekends to give these kids such an experience.
    I was with you and Trish in spirit last week, and so glad you found each other in the crowd
    Well done. Denyse x

    Lordy – you did look like you were going to pass out! Good for you – you did it. As for your recruiting, how ’bout I wait for you at the finish line with a gallon of water?
