From Ken Eynon: A reminder that entries for the Women and Girls 5k Fun Run can be lodged online at or a hardcopy downloaded and posted. Entry forms are also available at the Canberra Runners Shop and at all ACT Cross Country Club (ACTCCC) runs. The 5k starts at 9am in Commonwealth Park on Sunday 1st April. All female runners and walkers are encouraged to enter this great event now in it's 21st year and where possible make a taxable donation to the Race Charity a very worthwhile local charity.

The ACTCCC, which is a not for profit organisation, would greatly appreciate any assistance or help on the day by those unable to participate. If you can spare a small amount of time on Sunday 1 April to help please advise me and I will pass your details to Robyn McClelland, the Race Director.

Today at training: more anaerobic work, 12 x 100m with 50m or less jog between. A nice short fast session to stimulate the muscles without fatiguing the brain! Shisei, Katie, Amanda, Colin and Ken enjoyed the morning. And it was great to see the rain, yesterday morning as well.

"Well according to the Global Positioning System we are exactly in the middle of nowhere."

  1. What a great site! I liked blowing up the world. BOOM!

    You know, that BOOM looks really close to 8OOM.

    Ah! Conspiracy!
