So, my second weekend in Sydney I decided to participate in City 2 Surf. It is similar to Bay to Breakers in SF (although there were not nearly the same level of costumes and nakedness as in SF) or the Bolder Boulder in, well, Boulder (although Boulder had a slip 'n slide which was conspicuously missing from Sydney). I finished in 2 hours and 10!!! Please don't ask how many k it was :) It was an amazing, er, run. It goes from the CBD (central business district for non-aussies, call it downtown and people will mock you, trust me) to Bondi beach. Just before hitting the top of "Heartbreak Hill" there was an spectacular view of the Opera House, then you turn a corner and see Bondi in all it's beachy glory. This was the first time I saw both and they were phenomenal! Post race I went over to a co-worker's house for apple pie!!! Seriously, Sydney rules.
And if you are following my tales of Sydney I'm still looking into various areas, haven't settled on one yet :)
