Running Down Under: The Sydney Running Festival

Earlier this fall I was invited to lace up my kicks and head Down Under to join 37,000 other runners at Blackmores’ Sydney Running Festival, a one-day, four-race event in the Aussie city.


It wasn’t the first time racing away from my home turf in Miami (I’ve run in the Bahamas, Antigua, Vancouver and in Jamaica’s Kingston City Run). But it was the first time I’ve run in the Southern Hemisphere (and no, races there don’t go anti-clockwise!)


Now I’m back, I’m sharing my impressions, tips and recommendations over on my favorite fitness site, FitBottomedGirls. Surf on over and give the story a read. And then start planning your own 2019 Australian runcation!
