So if you’d like to get fit, now is a great time to start.
One of the things I’d love to see is a lot more people getting out and enjoying exercise and I think the City2Surf is an excellent event to get you started on the road to better health and fitness.
I’ve run it with work teams; club teams, I’ve run it solo, I’ve done it with a group of mates and I ran it 26 times with my dad. Whether you are a family group, a club, a school or a group of workmates, the City to Surf is a fun day out and a great day for bonding and friendship.
In the weeks before the event, you’ll notice a lot more people out jogging in parks, exercising at the gym and out running around the suburbs.
For me, as for many thousands of others across the country, this is a community fitness event. It is a social occasion that draws family and friends together so they can pit themselves against themselves.
It is all about doing your best, whether that is to beat the time you did in a previous year or just to finish and be able to say ‘I’ve run the City 2 Surf.’
Whether you just want to get fit or you want to join me in Sydney in August, you are welcome to share my training program and my tips and insights on our Facebook page called City2Surf 100 day Challenge.
I’m thinking of putting a team together this year to raise money for a worthwhile charity. If you’d like to be a part of it, just let me know.
