nev's race report - vet's 1/2 marathon

"You know that you are back in Canberra when you have to scrape the ice off the car windscreen to go for a run. However, by the start time it was perfect conditions for the Canberra Veterans 1/2 marathon. I was very happy with my run - 1 hour 34.58, a 30 second improvement since the Weston Creek 1/2 marathon that I ran with Liza and Mike earlier in March."

six more sleeps

SIX more sleeps ....... till the 2010 CITY TO SURF

Training is done ..... Good luck to Kim and Anita who are both running on Sunday .... more news to come!

bush capital run - race report

We were a bit worried about the predicted winds and rain in Canberra for the annual Bush Capital Runs, however, God looked upon the event favourably and once again, a good day for running - although the winds strengthened during the later part of the run and there was a bit of rain. Both Kim and I competed in the 16km runs.

Kim finished in a time of 1.28.25, which he was pleased with. Not a PB, but great preparation for his first City to Surf this weekend. Liza finished in 1.22.09, which was 20 seconds short of her PB of 2009 - she is blaming the windy and those dreadful hills !!!

We'll both be back next year - well organised event and fabulous to see so many locals from the area - Claudie, Jo, Sue, Rob .... hope for even more in 2011.
