Great effort from the speedy threesome; showing how, when you train together, you can spur one another on and improve together.

The mother-and-daughter-under-20 category was won by "Speedylegs" with a combined time of 38 minutes. Mother Speedylegs, known in Cool Running circles as "Southy", reads this blog. Congratulations and we are flattered that you borrowed our nomenclature.

At the Fun Run I met up with Michelle (pregnant), Erin (pregnant) and Cecilia (pregnant). More speedylegs on the way to be sure.

Note that I was practicing running at 5:35 pace, in preparation for the marathon. The first km was 15 seconds too fast (not bad!) and the other three spot on.


  1. What a great groupal pace, congratulations!!!

  2. Thanks Geoff. Yes, I saw Maria yesterday and some of the others in the group. Well done ladies.You've got a great training group there.
    What a lovely day for a race! Perfect conditions. I was very happy with my race - running a nice PB of about 25 seconds on the course. I always love the atmosphere of the W & G.
