So it's tax time, 30 June already. Half the year has flown. Was it a taxing run at Mt Ainslie yesterday? No – the course was great, there were only a few rocky bits, and the weather was perfect.

Speedygeese at the ACT Masters Athletics monthly handicaps yesterday:
Mount Ainslie 9.3k
2 Adam Robinson M35 51:11 53.7% Gold
5 Miranda Rawlinson W55 53:48 69.9 Bronze
16 Colin Farlow M45 36:45 82.9
26 Bronwyn Calver W35 46:28 69.0
27 Kathy Southgate W50 38:04 96.1 !!!
33 Rod Lynch M45 37:26 82.3
43 Christopher Lang M55 51:22 65.1
53 Rae Palmer W60 49:10 81.8
71 Mick Horan M45 42:35 72.4
72 Alan Duus M60 50:13 69.1
78 Margaret McSpadden W60 60:24 66.6
84 Peter Hogan M60 54:14 63.8
85 Mick Charlton M55 56:12 58.9
91 Tony Booth M70 55:13 69.6
94 Caroline Campbell W65 56:35 75.2
95 Charmaine Knobel W55 54:02 70.4
101 finishers

Mount Ainslie 4.5k
8 Gary Bowen M50 18:59 76.6% Bronze
12 Cathy Montalto W55 22:00 78.7
17 Geoff Moore M60 18:14 86.0
22 Amanda Walker W40 20:24 72.8
28 Ken White M50 18:39 80.0
38 Katie Forestier W40 18:54 79.6
44 Neil Boden M55 21:19 71.8
64 Annette Sugden W45 25:51 59.3
69 finishers

I didn’t feel I was going very fast, but 86% for me is excellent. However it pales into insignificance compared with Southy’s 96%! These percentages are all relative to the world age standard!


Maria, Helen, and Charlie weren't running at Mt Ainslie, but here they are at Cooleman Ridge two weeks ago.

  1. Annette thought she was running the Paris Marathon. She stopped at the War Memorial coffee shop at the half-way mark.
