and lastly

Happy Birthday to DEB - see you at the group next Wednesday at 4.30 pm!

Hope it was a fabulous day for you.

the rest of your life .... read on

Whilst reading one of the many running books that I picked up recently in Canberra (at the Lifeline Book Fair), I came across this:

"The finish line is not the end. The finish line is the beginning. Standing at the starting line gives you permission to hope. Taking the time to train, putting in the mileage, making the changes in your life and taking the risks has given you consent to hope for the best in yourself. The miracle is not that you finished, but that you had the courage to start". John Bingham
Good luck to all of those out there competing in the Marathon this Sunday - 3 sleeps to go - getting to the start line is an achievement in itself. Look forward to hearing the race reports from Sunday, as well as the Half Marathon and Marathon race reports later in May.

new start time - 4.30 pm on a wednesday

Please note the new start time of 4.30 pm on Wednesday afternoon

mike's half marathon - weston creek update


Well done to Mike (above) on completing yet another Half Marathon - the Weston Creek HM, earlier this year. Yes, it was early last month, but Mike has only just returned from another trip away.
Not sure if he's being told off in this photo or not!
Well done Mike!
