Today I ran my 20th half marathon ... and boy am I glad I chose such a tough scenic course ... itโ€™s not always about running your fastest time ... sometimes itโ€™s just about doing it because you can & you love it ... the Great Southern Half Marathon is really one you need to add to your bucket list ... the first 4kmโ€™s start on the beach with stunning views ... you then head for the Aldinga Scrub Conservation Reserve ... this starts with a section of soft sand which Iโ€™m sure is less than a km but felt like an eternity ๐Ÿ™„ ... it then changes to trail / gravel and is quite a pleasant scenic part of the course ... when you hit the coast line again thereโ€™s a killer uphill section into a horrific head wind to the turnaround point ... gosh that turnaround point could not have come quick enough ... a nice little down hill with tail wind & more views before you head back onto the beach for the last 2kmโ€™s ... I had a tough day out there with dehydration issues but I still loved it & couldnโ€™t think of a better way to spend my 20th half marathon ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ ... well done Adelaide ... you truly are beautiful ๐Ÿ˜

often itโ€™s harder to call it quits ... I could have slogged my way through another 10kmโ€™s but I promised myself that this year was about listening to my body and not pushing through bad situations for the sake of an extra km ... I know I have the mental toughness to push through anything ... I donโ€™t need to prove that to anyone ... all I need to focus on is keeping my body in one piece ... thatโ€™s the goal ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
