I enjoyed running the entire race at two hour pace and will probably do that again one day. I'm not sure I will do it in the Vets Half though, unless they change from their three start system back to one, because it is not possible to pace people running in three different groups starting half an hour apart! Maybe I will run in group three at exactly 1:40 pace? But not if the people I am trying to help insist on starting in group two.

It was good to see some PBs amongst the team members I have listed above. A perfect day and many fast times. Thea, Gabrielle and Pamela started with me and all managed to crack the two hour mark. Congratulations!

One example of a great run - Peter Hogan took 15 minutes off his time for last year!

  1. The official results on the web omitted Pamela so I have emailed the webmaster to see if that can be corrected.

  2. I thought that link in the results to speedygeoff's name would show that photo of him in Friday's Canberra Times on the front line at the start of the ABS Fun Run!

    Watch out for that tree Geoff!


  4. All right Ewen, I might put in something about the ABS Fun Run later. After all Katie ran way under pb pace so deserves a mention (or two now!). But then there are too many birthdays in May and I have a backlog of other topics to cover too!
