The sign on the main highway (as in today's title) is exactly what we need in Canberra coming out of Higgins/Hawker towards Glenloch. I have see one horrific accident there, due to cars being allowed to pass down the hill where there is one downhill lane and two uphill.
A few posts ago I prophesied Elizabeth would have more sun, more magpies, more dogs. So far one run this morning produced two out of three of those items: today is a fantastic sunny day, I didn't experience any magpies in the seventy minute run; but for the first time in over 44 years of running I was savaged by a dog.
Yes a large dog attacked me at the back of some houses, its stupid owner saying "she only wants to play" and failing to control it. So I limped home bleeding. I am rather cross.
It is strange being a Canberran in Adelaide the weekend of the Melbourne Grand Final between Sydney and Perth, and of the Sydney Grand Final between Melbourne and Brisbane. I am feeling very national today.
I will be off for another run tomorrow, then off to see the lead singer of the band Newsboys whom I have discovered is in town.
