Burley Griffin

The lake - and the athlete.

Lake Burley Griffin made a picturesque backdrop for last Sunday's Half Marathon. Here's Griffin himself, powering home. Ken took many photos, I may put some on the ACTVAC website in the near future, with Ken's permission.

The BBQ Stakes handicap
Yesterday I ran a shocker, struggling in in just under thirty minutes; only to find that Roger and Helen who started over a minute ahead of me had also run just under thirty minutes. The Half Marathon took its toll!


  1. 30 minutes! Damn... that was my opportunity to beat you.

    Hope you're not having a go at Griffin's weight gain with that 'Burley' title.

  2. Your chance to beat me will come at the Canberra Times Fun Run.
    Would I ever choose a title with more than one meaning? Of course I would, every time if possible. Not often spotted though, so well done.
