Ten Bridges Classic STaR 30ks

In fact Horrie and I counted 18 bridges if you count rail bridges, foot bridges and the few in the bush section.
Arrived just before six at Longueville to see a huge 6am group run off.
Horrie and I went off at 6:10am with a group including O Runner,Johnny Dark and Professor.

We were still all together up to the Harbour Bridge and were then dropped by them as the pace was much faster than we wanted to run. The 6:20 group caught us just after Anzac Bridge.
Horrie and I ran for a few k's with them before being left behind and picking up Paul Every and the three of us ran back to Longueville together.
You cross basically the Harbour, Anzac, Iron Cove and Gladesville bridge during this run with a final 1k in the bush, which was fantastically cool and quiet.

Weather was fantastic but the hands were pretty cold for most of the run. Professor and I were thinking of rolling Horrie for his gloves at one stage.

Ran 29.8ks after we did a little wrong turn in Prymont. Time for me was 2:47:19. Average pace of 5:36 per klm.

Next Saturday is Aths NSW Short Course at Bankstown on Saturday afternoon.

It was a perfect run this morning! I got colder as the run progressed. See you at the cross country!

Thanks for your company this morning Flake. It was a great run. Reminded me of the old days when we used to run the STaRs together before you went to Melbourne.

Sounds like a fun morning out there Flakey, even if it was a bit on the chilly side.

I was running a STaR run once with Horrie and as I recall we took a little wrong turn that morning too. He'd do anything to rack up extra kms I reckon ;-)

Yeah but "18 bridges" doesn't work that well as a name ;-)

LOL this is about the 4th blog report I've read on this run - sounds good!
