Lake G Handicap (from Ian Clout)
"Just a reminder that the next Lake Ginninderra Handicap run is on Tuesday 30 May. As the bike path is still closed at the normal start line, the registration point is behind the Bella Vista in the car park.

"In line with their new corporate uniform initiative, runners from DIMA will be required to have shirts tucked in and shoes laces properly tied.

"As mentioned at the last run, one of the organisers, Michael Aylott, has transferred to Melbourne with work. The remaining organisers would therefore welcome offers of assistance so that they can do the occasional run themselves. It's not difficult, especially when a few people can share the load. So please email me back if you're prepared to help out, even if it's only a couple of times during the year.

"Finally, if you wish to donate a bit more than a gold coin to the Cancer Council and get a receipt for tax purposes, please bring your donation on Tuesday or contact me in the next couple of weeks."

I will add the handicap to my "coming events" list.

Dickson training
Over twenty runners were at Dickson last night to enjoy or endure a set of 600 metre runs with equal-time recovery. I had a good hard workout, that's two days in a row! It was great to see John Morton return to the training group.

If you want to see a really good write-up of this and other training sessions we do as they happen, Strewth usually attends both Monday and Thursday training at present and summarises each session very well in her blog.

A Message From God
One day God was looking down at Earth and saw all of the rascally behavior that was going on. He decided to send an angel down to Earth to check it out.

He called one of His angels and sent the angel to Earth for a time.

When he returned, he told God, "Yes, it is bad on Earth: 95% are misbehaving and 5% are not."

He thought for a moment and said, "Maybe I had better send down a second angel to get another opinion." So God called another angel and sent him to Earth for a time too.

When the angel returned he went to God and said, "Yes, the Earth is in decline; 95% are misbehaving and 5% are being good."

God was not pleased.

So God decided to E-mail the 5% that were good because He wanted to encourage them. Give them a little something to help them keep going.

Do you know what that E-mail said ? ? ?


I didn't get one either.


  1. LOL. That's a good one. And for the record, I didn't get the email either.

  2. Neither did I - must be cos I've eaten too much chocolate!
