“When a person really desires something, all the universe conspires to help that person to realize his dream.” Paulo Coelho, Alchemist
I told a friend I want to run Brisbane 1/2 marathon. Lisa never run a single marathon before, not even 10km although she constantly jog. She said she will accompany me and off the two ladies to Brisbane marathon!
1st stop, brunch at Le Cirque Fine Foods, Southern Cross before heading to the airport. My brunch was average but Lisa’s food was better.
We have never been to Brisbane before and never stay in Airbnb, so we decided to stay in one in Brisbane. Kate, our host, her place is really nice and neat, is at George street, so really near the CBD and of course, Brisbane 1/2 marathon starting point.
The next day, I randomly bought a Groupon. We decided to walk to the place. Along the way, we had fun taking photos. We searched for the cafe and guess what, this cafe is right under the Brisbane eye! The food was really good, Champ kitchen and bar. Lisa ordered the champ’s breakfast while I had wild mushroom and spinach.
After the brunch, we walked more to collect race packs. So from George street to grey street and now walking to Park street. After collecting, we decided to walk back, from park street, we walked all the way to queen street. While searching for a toilet, it became an adventure. We thought we found a toilet at the Milton train station and guess what, it was locked! But the train station has nice graffiti.
Aunt Lydia treated us Pig and whistle. My pork pie is really not nice but others are not bad.
That night, we decided to only eat yogurt for dinner. The next morning, thanks to Kate, we had cereals and milk before heading for the run. And is all running after that!
Before we headed back, we stopped at Taro’s Ramen. Delicious! We ordered the fire ramen and kimchi pork rice. Is near the central train station, where we took the Airtrain to the airport.
Positivity is not being optimistic when things go well but positivity is when things don’t turn the way you wanted but you are opitimitic it will be right.
