  1. The storm today was similar to last Thursday, yet Interclub was on! I was doing 50kph through flood waters to get there. Perhaps veteran runners are softer than their younger cousins?

    By the way, Kathy Southgate ran about 5:06 after being 4:00 with a lap to go - not bad for an old goose.

  2. I meant 3:40 with a lap to go. You can't buy an 80 second lap when you need one.
