Fri 7.30am 5.25km Cairns Post - Run For Cairns 1st Open 17m03
Thur 5.24am 9.48km Esplanade 41m05 - 4m20 K's
Wed 5.13pm 9.56km Esplanade 34m37 - 3m37 K's
A result! happening to be working in Cairns and they hold a fun run as part of the Cairns Ironman Triathlon weekend.
Unusual to have a race before work but 7.30am start meant it was not going to impact on my working day.
5km jog warm up, cloudless blue sky, slight chill in the air but perfect for running. A few hundred locals maybe a few out of towner's. As normal I started fast, only one start of race 'wanna be seen' Dick to overtake and then follow the lead out bike. Felt good for first 2K's, Garmin said 3m05 + 3m15, settled into it by third KM 3m16,
was able to see I had a clear lead at the turnaround. Cruised home 3m17 for 4th KM, 3m18 for 5th KM and 50 secs for an extra 250m (slow!), breasted the tape like a triathlete and gave interviews to press and TV (true!) - might be able to upload my 5 seconds of Cairns fame.

Not sure how my ran Noosa comment got converted to completed the Noosa Tri !
