Question: What do you get at the Miura International half-marathon as your special gift?
There could be a number of answers to this question. A bad case of chafe. Blisters. Very sore legs. All of these are possibilities but are in the end, wrong.
The answer is an enormous radish.
Thanks to @LorimerSimon for being a great running mentor, race organiser and supporter on the day. Also thanks to everyone who ran with me, gave advice, cheered me on etc. You know who you are.
And finally, thanks to Elaine who called me on the telephone to congratulate me on the race, 500 m before I had reached the finish line. Your timing as always was impeccable but somehow those last few metres were much easier after having talked to you!
Can’t believe you would answer the phone whilst running or leave your shoes behind. Haha, wait yes I can.
Thanks Jazz! 😛
You are right Jarrad. Boy, you know your Auntie so well! Well done Merilyn
Congratulations, Merilyn! Well done!!
Great work Merilyn! Marathon next? City to surf marathon here in perth is nice, you have a good base…

I will never do a full marathon. I’m too old to start training for that kind of thing now!!
