Started with Champ maybe 6 min ahead of the usual HuRTS wharves crew. A nice and easy pace slightly interrupted down at the Passenger Terminal where Champ heroically gave first aid assistance. The lucky recipient was a morbidly obese woman in her 50s who had fallen and fit her head. The poor thing. My role was standing and watching.
There allowed HuRTS to catch up which happened down at Barangaroo. From there, the pace picked up to 4:30s as I chatted to Brendan and the Frenchman. We collectively conclude re Gold Coast performances that the course ran short.
Personally, my cough and blocked sinus’ is getting worse but hey, at least it’s not really in the chest.
12km in 60 min.
