December 31, 2014

Hopefully the festive season has brought you what you wanted, and apologies for the laziness in the past few weeks. I suppose working hard and enjoying some time off training does have its advantages. Now that those commitments are virtually over and 2014 is rapidly coming to a conclusion, it’s now time to look forward to 2015 and the events that I plan to make an appearance at.

At this stage the schedule is very much subject to change based on finances and fitness. In one case, it’s also subject to obtaining relevant travel documentation but once I get that then the excitement will really build. If I am in fact missing some events I have done in the past this doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy doing those races or think that anything in the organisation is amiss, it only means that other events take priority. I’m sure I will return to do those events sometime in the future. I may even find the time to add the event to the schedule depending on fitness needs/level and finances.

Without further ado, here is the proposed schedule as at New Year’s Eve 2014 in Australia.

NOTE: Events that I may not enter will appear in ORANGE

22: Twilight Run (Half Marathon), St.Lucia, Brisbane, Australia [ENTERED]

12: Australian Running Festival Canberra Marathon, Canberra, Australia [Outside chance of doing the 50km event, more likely to enter the standard Marathon]
26: Gold Coast Bulletin Fun Run (10km or Half Marathon), Robina, Gold Coast, Australia [With no long weekend being observed employment may have to take precedence.]

24: Rocky River Run (Half Marathon), Rockhampton, Australia [Local event measuring just short of 21km]

14: City2South (14km), Brisbane, Australia [Running in lead RED Group]

5: Gold Coast Marathon (Marathon), Gold Coast, Australia

9: City2Surf (14km), Sydney, Australia [ENTERED, Running in lead RED Group]
30: City to Surf (Marathon), Perth, Australia [Different organisation than the City2Surf in Sydney]

Bridge to Brisbane (10km), Brisbane, Australia [fitness may prevent my participation, however will consider entering if the football draw is kind]
20: Sydney Marathon (Half Marathon), Sydney, Australia [Doing Half Marathon here with other marathons later in the year in mind]
20: Twilight Bay Run (Half Marathon), Wynnum, Brisbane, Australia [Remote chance of doing both events on the 20th, disappointingly changed from Saturday to Sunday event]

TBD: Capricorn Coast Running Festival (10km or Half Marathon), Yeppoon, Australia [Local Event, participation may depend on transportation to/from event and actual date]
18: Melbourne Marathon (Marathon), Melbourne, Australia [3rd time entering, leaving another 7 before becoming a famous Spartan]

1: Auckland Marathon (Marathon), Auckland, New Zealand [1st time EVER overseas, pending travel documentation]
TBD: Point to Pinnacle (Half Marathon), Hobart, Australia [If documentation for Auckland not secured by early August, this event will be the first alternate]
15: City2Sea (15km), Melbourne, Australia [2nd alternate if spots for first 2 events are not able to be secured]


It may seem like a demanding schedule, but to me it’s a challenge I’m hoping of relishing particularly at the back end of the year. Training will begin early in the new year to try to build a base for the long year ahead. Some entries have been lodged, and accommodation and transport will be booked well in advance. As ever, keep an eye out on this blog and on the YouTube channel for content, hopefully I’ll be able to utilise both online resources frequently for you to enjoy.
