2013 City2Surf
Alright jerkbags, C2S is less than two months away and racepacks have started arriving, so let's start making outlandish predictions about our race times and who's going to get the drunkest afterwards. Sub-70 and it'll definitely be me.

k go.

Aiming for a sub-60 time (3 years running) again this year. Hoping to finally crack it although I'm no where near as ft as I was last year (62.17).

I'll make an outlandish statement that I will last past 5pm this year

Sub-60 would be off the charts, so I'm going to try that.

Did you crack 80 last year Marshy? I know you were thereabouts. Massive cojones for skipping 70 entirely and going straight for sub-60 anyway.

Don't think so. I only started running (for reals) this time last year.
Sickbuoy beat my time ffs.

But I did my Sydney Half-Marathon pace at 4:40k/m (over 21km obviously).
Going by that pace, I would have done 14k in 65 mins.

It's a 1/3 shorter and I think I can crack it.
Because fuck Bism that's why.

Heartbreak hill will probably add about 8 seconds to your overall pace, so if you are going for a sub 60 you want to be running at about 4:12 min/k for the bits that arent heartbreak hill. Doubt I have that in me this year, will give it a crack anyway.

Yeah crunched the numbers after chatting to a colleague and you're right.
It's outside comfort zone and quite fast.

Fuck you, Bism.
