Steve's first Melbourne Fun Run

This past Sunday, Steve did his first Melbourne run. It was a 15 km race and he ran with his new running buddy from work, Nathan. It was a nippy morning! It was only 9 degrees (yup, single digits already! We're not in Brisbane anymore!) with a forecast for rain and high winds. Luckily, the rain held off until after the run.
Steve in his lucky shark pants. Man, these have to be banned to the house only! I'm sure Clo didn't think they'd get so much outside wear when she made them for Steve!
Support crew with a hot tea! I broke out the gloves not long after this! It was nice, Nathan's wife and 2 kids came along, so I had some company while I watched the race.
On your marks...
Get set...
Go! There's Steve and Nathan just behind him...
The guys, just after coming in over the finish line. They ran the race in 1 hour, 15 minutes and 48 seconds. Steve was very happy with that. Well done guys!
And the finishers! You can tell it was windy, look at Steve's shorts! Brrrr.
