Preparation to date: 1,000,000+ km according to Strava - not 1km of that on foot.
Race strategy: Left, right. Rinse and repeat.
Song to get me through: Eye of the Tiger – Survivor.
Target time: 1:05:47... roughly.
Post-event reward: Lazy ride home via Maccas... Bairnsdale.

Who: Rob Anderson, CEO Disability Sport and Recreation.
Run Melbourne Event: Half Marathon.
Preparation to date: 450m dash to Smith Street for the daily DSR coffee run.

Song to get me through: I’m gonna be (500 miles) – The Proclaimers.
Target time: Before sunset.
Post-event reward: The amber ‘Hydration Station’.
