The Masters Half Marathon this Sunday at Stage 88, Commonwealth Park, looks like featuring Stuart Doyle and Scott Imhoff racing head to head at the front of the fast group, both wanting very fast times to qualify them for a national team. There are three start times, 8:00 am, 8:30 am, 9;00 am. Given that most runners in the fast group catch almost no runners in the slow groups, it makes for a clear run for the fast runners. It does mean though that the slow group runners have to wait a while for the presentations.
I am rapt with my form at the moment. It’s not the times I am running – not at all, they are not exactly world beating – but I have achieved my main long term goal, I am running PAIN FREE and I am therefore enjoying my running and achieving my training objectives. Hurrah!
38 Happy Years
Today is our 38th wedding anniversary. Here is a recent photo of Jenny and I with a picture of my great great grandfather, David Alfred Ewers. Taken in Goolwa SA at a family reunion, I had just returned from a 21k run. Of course.
A very young Jodie
This photo has my daughter Monica (now Mon Hall) at Hawker Preschool with birthday cakes for her fifth birthday in 1981. A very young Jenny is standing behind her, and Mon's pre-school friends around her. One of the friends is Jodie Sims, not quite five! Two across from Mon, her right, your left, laughing. I just love the haircuts their mummies have given them!
