Parliament House & hazardous signs

running quote of the day "There ain't no shame looking at a good runner's back. Now, if the runner sucks, that's something else entirely…"

lots of good runners stuck close together in the ACT womens 8k cross country championships

Sri Chinmoy: It didn't cross the road; it transcended it.

they could have used signs like this one!

Monday training at Parliament House won't be along the grassy track we used last time. First of all, roadworks of some kind or other will be taking place to turn the road into a one way, anti-clockwise circuit (how crazy can you get?). Secondly, the metallic signs they have put up along the grass are extremely dangerous in the dark; they are at throat height and difficult to see as they are at 90 degrees facing the road alongside us. I suppose the signs will be removed after there is a nasty accident, let's hope it isn't one of us who has the accident.

from Ian Clout (yesterday): “This afternoons rain will have settled the dust nicely for next Tuesdays running of the Ginninderra Handicap. In case you need any further incentives to turn up, check out the following: The Armstrong Trophy for consistent improvement will be awarded for the period January - June 2006; There is a strong rumour that the fastest ever official runner of the Ginninderra Handicap (21mins 35secs on 22/12/1987) will be at the run; and It is Rad Leovic's 79th birthday on Tuesday. He will be bringing a cake and would love as many runners as possible to share it with him after the run.
“Runners working in the Belconnen district would be aware that there is going to be a joint emergency services exercise conducted within the Belconnen Town Centre on Tuesday between 9.00am and 2.30pm, involving road closures and possible evacuation of offices etc. Hopefully, it shouldn't affect the run.”
