Prior to this, the longest distance we have ever covered was 15km. Today's run along the East Coast Beach was a very pleasant one but I'll be lying if I told you it was a piece of cake.
We started off at 7.15am when it was still nice and cool. Soon the warm weather started to sap our energy, all I wanted to do was stop at every water station for a cold drink. The final stretch was so draining and my legs were aching, we were practically shuffling along. Needless to say, the happiest moment was when we saw the finish point looming ahead.
We signed up for the 21k run, hence we had a '2' stamped on our arms. The other runners did the 10k or 30k.
