#1 I ran the city 2 surf today. It's a fun run in Sydney, we had 75000 people there today. It's a 14km run that I've been wanting to run forever, my dad used to run it, my brother has run it a few times, my grandad still runs it and my aunt used to run it. So you can see it's sort of a family thing. Plus I used to be decent at long distance during the middle of high school, but dropped off until about December last year when I took up running again.
So crossing that line today was an incredible feeling, as it was a long term goal from the fitness initiative thread to get to this race and complete it.
I think now I'm going to move on from running for a bit, as I've been running fairly regularly since December and want to change it up a little. Looking at taking up cycling again.
#2 Teaching, this is my 4th year of uni and they decided they needed a tutor for web design, in the interaction design studio we run. I was only supposed to be helping out with tutorials on thursday and friday but the friday tutorial didn't cover everything the students need to know for assignment 1 and the tutor went home. So I gave a tutorial in the lab time to the students on css layout techniques, making it up as I went, and it was such an awesome feeling to see the passing of knowledge, and seeing them understand it etc.
There's no real point to this blog I guess, more of me recounting some stuff that I thought was cool recently, however if anyone here has run the city 2 surf in Sydney, or was even there today, do speak up
