Heidi: Orange Half Marathon 102 minutes. Woo-Hoo! Congratulations on completing your first Half Marathon! And 102 minutes on a tough course is very good. You could expect to be at least 5 minutes quicker on Canberra courses. The half marathon was part of  the "Orange Colour City Running Festival". So make sure you wear the orange souvenir T-shirt at your next run with us; I hope the T-shirt will be orange coloured.

Some Orange Results
Scott McTaggart first 1:10.08
Heidi Johnston 1:42.38 fourth W30-39. Heidi you are so young! I thought you'd be 40 by now!
Jim White 1:45.29 won the M60s. Well done Heidi, ahead of Jim is many people's primary goal.

I will be tapering for the half marathon and hope to run sub 95.

Heidi at North Curtin. She will be pleased with her time at Orange. I hope she hasn't over-celebrated with too much red wine and pizza! [When Heidi comments, it will be "there can never be too much red wine and pizza!"]


  1. I'd celebrate with beer and pizza for a week if I thrashed Jim by 3 minutes. Well done Heidi!

  2. Great time Heidi - fantastic result!
