It was a cold start and as we drove over to our destination the misty mountains were pretty but a bit daunting. How cold was it going to be??
When we arrived at the reserve at 830 it was a balmy 7 degrees C. (It only warmed up to 9 degrees by the time we left at 11am)
We collected our race bibs and waited until the very last minute to shed our jackets. The little bit of sun was nice but not enough to take the chill off. At least it wasn't raining, it would have been really miserable if it had.
Hanging Rock is a lovely spot and while we didn't run UP the rock we ran around the base and had some difference in opinion what constitutes undulating.
It always feels great when you are done. Being able to run in different locations has been very motivating and I would highly recommend it.
