The hills session we do. It’s good to see a physical marker in front of you to run faster rather than a timer!

10. What is your running goal for 2014?
Beating 90 minutes in a half marathon!

11. Any general comments about your involvement in RunMonash.
It’s been great to see how much the club has grown over the last few years. I can remember when it was only a handful of people in the middle of winter, but now we’re reaching the 3 figure mark. It’s good to know so many people share a common interest and do this weekly!
