• I've Got a Feeling

...that I may just make it through this year with some good performances. This morning I ran unconvincingly (I THOUGHT!) at Blewitts in the monthly ACT Masters handicap run over 3.5k, but the time was fast, a whole minute quicker than last year. Even that was not good enough for a place on handicap, but that's because I started last, with Ken, and am due to be put further back is my guess. I can only be happy with that.

Miranda is improving rapidly and had a great win in the 7k.

The rain fell all night; stopped as we started the run this morning; started again after we had finished and packed up. Perfect timing!

If you are in Canberra there is absolutely no reason to run by yourself, alone, any day. Tomorrow, meet us at Parliament House at 5:30pm. It's free; it's fun; it's always on, rain or shine! But tomorrow's forecast is for the rain to have cleared. Looks good! Spring is here at last!


  1. wannabe said

    A good effort by Adam. Was the 3.5k race a warmup for the 7k race?

  2. Fantastic times and awesome that Miranda won Gold - woo hoo!!

  3. Go Miranda! The extra-long warm-up on Monday arvos is paying off already.

    Not a bad run from the less than smooth-faced Ruth too ;)
