Last-Minute City2Surf Tips

City2Surf
I don’t know how it happened, but the City2Surf is only five days away. Given that my preparation in 2016 has consisted mainly of eating croissants and ice cream in Paris and drinking hot coffee/chocolate/tea/anything-to-keep-warm in Iceland, I have a feeling this is not going to be the year I set a PB. In fact, for the first time in a long time, I’m mildly concerned about making it to the finish line with my body in one piece.

lineIs it just me or is January disappearing frighteningly fast? I swear that it was New Year’s Eve last week, but my calendar tells me that it’s actually January 20th today (ahem, that’s seven days until my birthday if anyone is interested).

So I think I’ve finally lost the plot. It started quite few months ago, when my very excellent (and very-new-at-the-time) boyfriend and I went on a rock-climbing date. And I loved it. Plus I think I wanted to impress him. It was some combination of the two at any rate. Fast forward a few months and I feel like I might have taken things too far though, because it would appear I’ve signed up to abseil down a 33-storey building (that’s 1 Market Street in the Sydney CBD), as part of Abseil for Youth, raising money for the Sir David Martin Foundation, with all proceeds going directly towards helping young people in crisis to overcome drug and alcohol addiction.

I’m nursing a bit of a hangover today guys. Worse than that, I’m sitting at Coolangatta Airport nursing a hangover. Not exactly the best place to be when you’re feeling like what you actually need is a cuddle, 5L of water and an extra 10 hours sleep. But hey, at least I’ve had an excellent weekend.
