Snapshot: Nike + Run Club (NRC) Women’s Half Marathon

categories: Health & Fitness

After months and months of lengthy runs, short sprints and hill starts (throughout Europe), that day finally arrived. Today, staying fit in Sydney got a whole lots more social with the world’s largest run club, the Nike + Run Club (NRC) Women’s Half Marathon, took place in Sydney… and it was HUGE.

The goal? To meet up weekly, train hard and motivate your other women to run the best race they possibly could (and there was plenty of all of the above). Each week, there was a training guide (12 week training guide) to follow in creating your race day-ready self. Developing consistency was key, building speed and endurance (to get your body used to longer distances), in addition to helping to strengthen muscles needed to become a confident runner.

I must admit; I definitely had pre-race jitters the night before, however, the second I jumped aboard the Nike express train (note: the tunes aboard were best ever), I was motivated for warm-up (oh, and race time). Check out the awesome Nike Train below.

We arrived at 7am at Olympic Park and warmed up as a group. Once the race started, I mentally talked myself through each kilometre (hey, there was 21 of them so LOTS of self-talk). The first 10km were ok, with an average of 5’23’’/km, pushing through the dull ache to achieve my PB of two hours. I’ve never been happier to see a finish line (located at the iconic Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre!)

Despite the pain in my body (yep, I needed a massage straight after the race), I was amazed at what an incredible event Nike’s first ever (female-only) half-marathon was. Everyone absolutely excelled, pushing themselves to their absolute limit to achieve a memorable goal like no other (I feel your pain guys, literally). To say I’ve seen anything like the camaraderie between all the racers would be a lie, with encouragement and effort key to today’s success amongst the groups of admirable women.

And while the race was what we were all there for, the DJ and party atmosphere post-sweat wasn’t all too bad either (although, there were many jelly legs present, the bopping was a good cool down post-race).

So tonight, I sit on the couch and write my blog, knowing that tomorrow might be a little sore… but definitely not sorry. Marathons such as these, are the perfect way to stay fit, stay social and stay motivated to achieve personal goals without hesitation or question.

Congrats to all the runners today; job well done!
