... and twentyone runners and three walkers enjoyed Parliament House in the deluge last night. A hard session but very rewarding.
Welcome to new co-contributor Griffin. Griffin is the hot favourite to take out the four lap spiral at the Veterans Track and Field this Thursday night. That is, as long as he resists the temptation to defend his win in the steeplechase first.
Anyway, you will note the number I am wearing in my profile is 666, the number Griffin is wearing in the photo is 222, and coincidently Ruth Baussmann finished in 111th place in Sunday's novice triathlon (short course). Better than that, Ruth came second in the W55 age category. Congratulations Ruth!

Snippet from a poem Mother Teresa had hanging on a wall of the orphanage she founded in Calcutta:
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
