thesammybrown Watching mum rock her first mara was easily one of my favorite races. Note: she's wearing fucking vollys. Can you say minimal? Technique > fancy shoes. #running #marathon #goldcoastmarathon #gcam14 @barnabybrown 2mon

  •   bec_heskes Thanks hun, it was pretty intense lol! @courtz_allen Thanks heaps for reading xxx 2mon
  •   bec_heskes Thanks @run_clay_run, all the best with your marathon journey 2mon
  •   jayneo675 What a great read! Congrats on finishing your first marathon ! I remember 2yrs ago I did my first gc Mara and I really wanted the sub 4 hr. But unfortunately 30km in I hit the dreaded wall. I finished it 4:05. And got to the end and was super disappointed. I then went on to attempt another sub 4 hr marathon last yr but my body didn't want me to again at Melb Mara and finished it in 4:18. Finally this yr at gc Mara I got the sub 4 hr. I was having the same quad issues. I felt like I had a constant cramp in both quads from 20km in. Don't be disappointed you've done an amazing effort! Congrats again :) - new insta follower 2mon
  •   bec_heskes Thanks @jayneo675 for your lovely comment! Congrats on getting your sub 4hr this year, that's amazing!! I'm giving Melb Mara a crack also so will see how I go there! Did you ever work out what was causing your quad cramps? Thanks again 2mon
  •   jayneo675 @bec_heskes I'm pretty sure I got cramping cause I wasn't having enough electrolytes. I only had glucose tablets and chocolate on me. I didn't have any gels which I usually have. I hate using gels but I think I'm gonna have to find one that suits. Cause By the 40km mark both legs in every muscle were cramping haha. I physically couldn't run faster even if I tried! I'm doing Melb mara too. But this ones to enjoy running with a friend. Looking forward to seeing your journey leading into Melb mara! 2mon

dragonlaydeee Proud moment
Completed my first ever half marathon!
I said 'never again' while running it lol (around the 18k mark), but think I might train up for another or do the same again next year and aim for a better time & hope to run pain free also!

elsas_wholesomelife And that's a wrap! Second Gold Coast Half Marathon smashed, we got a new PB of 1 hr 37 min, took 9 minutes off last years, and feeling ambitious to take on the full 42k next year, if my best running bud will join me #GCAM14 2mon

leitchy11 Already a week ago. Memories still so vivid. This is me at the 40 drinks station right across the road from where I was staying. I only got this photo and a few others yesterday but awesome to have some extra pics of the day.

girl_gone_clean Good news! The #marathon didn't kill me! first #postrace run was at Albert Park #parkrun in #Melbourne, where I've been on holidays since leaving the Gold Coast! I've been doing a ton of walking but went to parkrun today to test out the legs after a few days off. It was a very light effort and the only pain was a slight hip niggle but other than that I think I'm ready to head back home and start training again! - keen as, Especially seeing as I've spent the last few days wine-ing, coffee-ing and caking with a great old uni friend!!! felt especially wonderful to wear my #gcam14 #goldcoastmarathon finishers shirt!!! 2mon

kinosfault We ran a marathon in Gold Coast, then petted a kangaroo & took a picture with a sleeping koala in Sydney. Mission complete. Our 5 full day vacation in Australia has come to an end. Howard, Nancy, & I will definitely be back. Melbourne Marathon in 2016!
Thank you to our most gracious local hosts Amanda in Gold Coast, & Tracy in Sydney!!! It was a joy to also spend time with Mark Henaway, Charlene, Yui, & Heather.

correrpelomundo Bom dia, corredores!
Quem sonha em correr na Austrália? Neste último final de semana aconteceu a Gold Coast Airport Marathon, na região de Gold Coast, de praias super badaladas e ponto de encontro de surfistas. A fantástica foto é repost de @richycam, tirada durante a prova.

bec_heskes Home sweet home after an amazing 5 days! Thanks so much for all the wishes of support & congratulations I received, I have been absolutely blown away by it all!
Even though things didn't go exactly as I'd hoped, I learnt so much, not only about myself but about the human spirit, friendship & the importance of taking a chance on what might seem to be the impossible.
Truly a life changing experience!

  •   rallkear You should be super proud of this achievement @bec_heskes sometimes it comes down to how mentally tough you are , to get thru a race, and I reckon your pretty tough , super inspiring ! 2mon
  •   bec_heskes Thanks @rallkear, you're so lovely! I still need to work on my mental toughness though I think :-) Do you ever think you'll give one a crack? 2mon
  •   rallkear I will never say never to a marathon @bec_heskes but atm I'm concentrating on technique getting strong and running injury free :-) 2mon
  •   bec_heskes That sounds perfect to me! @rallkear 2mon
  •   runner__pete Nice medal bling, are you planing a second marathon 2mon
  •   bec_heskes I'm going to give Melbourne a crack, had a bit of bad luck at #gcam14 so want to redeem myself! Glad to see a lot of us GC marathoners are training for Melb too :-) @runner__pete 2mon
  •   runner__pete Nice, straight onto Melb, well done, my first full Mara was Melb last year, was good, my second was GC this year and it was much better, how is/was the marathon training going 2mon
  •   bec_heskes That’s awesome, I saw your GC time, congrats great job!! My training went well so I felt pretty prepared but my quads started cramping at the 15km mark (never happened to me before!) and I couldn’t get rid of it…the last 10k’s or so were a real struggle. I think I’ll be better mentally prepared this time around. All the best, look forward to following your journey @runner__pete 2mon
