like a small fish in a small pond

...that's how I felt when I saw how far back our runners were in the City to Surf last week. Nevertheless Caroline managed second in her age category, and a team which included Maria and Charlie finished second in a team category. Well done!

Any other category results I am not aware of.

But it's all good. It means there is a large sub-culture of fit and healthy people in Sydney and beyond. Pity the media in general will continue to focus on the unfit and the unhealthy. I shall try not to do that here.

Monday night training on western tracks at Parliament House was a 220m run with a 120m jog, by 12, on 2 minutes. Running were Adam, Alan, Amanda, Caroline, Christopher, Ewen, me, Helen, Joel, Katie, Ken, Maria, Peter, Rachelle, Sonia, and Yelena. It is almost light enough to run on those tracks again.

"...been a goose for years."


  1. So true about the big subculture of fit people. All the images (photos and TV coverage) of the C2S certainly proved that.

  2. AR would have run sub 75 if she hadn't chatted so long to the cheersquad.

    Not just Sydney - runners from all over do C2S. You had to do a 'not jogging' 5 minutes per km to be in the first 3,500.
