“The long run puts the eagle in the chicken.”

“The long run puts the tiger in the cat.” - Bill Squires, coach

Yesterday's 15k included the Pinnacle peak, at 703m. I stopped and looked at the view. Wet. Then jogged past 100 kangaroos. They are very tame in that area. A few bunnies were out and about, too. And flocks of white cockatoos, on the moist ground, quiet for once, feeding. Very tranquil.

A game: A bark in the dark. #4 in the Bonte series: this one is not at all tricky.

Track: Will the track be ready in time in mid October? I will pass on ALL intelligence gathered. I really have no idea at the moment.

Sad news: From Friar: Local running identity Rad Leovic finished the Hamburg Triathlon in first place in his age group. Then when he got to the hotel to book in for the World Masters Athletics Championships, he was told his wife Christine was in hospital. She died two days after having a heart attack. Rad flew back to Australia, but his wife had already passed away. Her funeral will be held shortly. As announced at the Customs joggers run yesterday, there are highs and lows in life. Rad has experienced both in the past week.


  1. when you put the dots so close together, it's not much of a challenge. haven't you ever done one of those before? yeesh, noob!

    but i see that it's a manta. the manta run. talk about personal maxims and call it the mantra manta run. after wards, you'll be the mantra mantra panter. wear all black? the mantra mantra pantin' panther.

    okay, i'll stop now. try the veal.

  2. shoe lacer, roo chaser, dot tracer, blog defacer, dis gracer. Man macer. Last placer.

    Sorry, I got carried away. Or I should be.
