Another wet day

... and twentyone runners and three walkers enjoyed Parliament House in the deluge last night. A hard session but very rewarding.
Griffin Hot Favourite

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!

Team Moore results in the triathlon

Ruth Baussmann 2nd W55 Short Course
John Stoney 2nd M40 Short Course
Bob Harlow 1st M55 Long Course
Roger Pilkington 3rd M45 Long Course
Caroline Campbell 1st W60 Long Course

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;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.


  1. That poem is beautiful! Lots of coincidences in our numbers - must be lucky! Good luck to Griffin for Thursday's track.

  2. Gary

    Hope you do win, with Team Moore cheering you on.

  3. Well Griffin you didn't do too bad, you were well up at the front of the field.

    You must have been tired from that huge pb in the 1500 one hour earlier.

    Guess who is targetting you next time!
