|The sun was not yet up (it must have slept in) when we approached the Story bridge. |
Running this bridge was a good enough excuse to join the Brisbane marathon (and half-marathon).
|Km 3. Runners pack the narrow pedestrian path on the bridge. |
The organisers should consider including a bridge climb... :-)
or at least a lane closure.
|Near the 5km mark in MacDonald Street or Hamilton Street in Kangaroo Point. |
The camera was still rubbing its eyes or lens.
|On the Go-between bridge at 16km+, looking north towards Coronation Drive.|
|Under the Coronation Drive overpass on the go-between bridge off-ramp.|
Faster runners on the bicentennial pathway on the left, get first whiff of the Brisbane river breeze.
|First lap turn 16.5km. I stopped my watch accidentally somewhere before 13km.|
|Kangaroo Point cliffs. Great for climbing, but I was here to run.|
|I found a 26km marathon. But I had to run 16.2km to find it.|
|Thanks to all the cheerers and volunteers at the drinks stations and elsewhere.|
|Approaching the arbour in Southbank parklands near the maritime museum,|
at the south end of Goodwill Bridge, Km27+.
| I also found an 8km marathon...|
That's after running about 34km.
Isn't the Brisbane beautiful this morning?
It isn't always so.
Flow river flow, flow to the sea...
|5km runners run in step.|
|Young and old, everyone's into running. Thanks to support crews too.|
|Under the Captain Cook bridge (freeway).|
|Running on the Goodwill bridge|
|Gaps in the marathon route in red, are due to some runner accidentally pressing a button on his watch.|
|I'm too slow for this marathon stuff. Might have to scale down to the half-marathon next time.|
