Last Night

"Feeling no pain/feeling good in my brain” - from "Last Night".

"Last Night" is a track written by Beatle George Harrison for "The Traveling Wilburys", of which he was a member. Well, we nearly had Traveling Wilburys at the track last night, it was "The Triathloning Bilbys" who competed with us in every event except Pole Vault. It was great to have some different competition, and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience, as we did too.

At the track last night it was almost cold enough to throw another blanket on the fire. Which made for some fast times in the longer events. Bronwyn ran a spiral 7 pb by 20 seconds; Thea ran an 800m pb by 0.1 seconds but I don't have her exact time. Kevin is back to form in the 800m which bodes well for next week's M60 4 x 800m relay record attempt. Ken had another great run as he establishes his M55 pbs and dominates the age group.

This will be updated with Thea's times, she ran ~2:52 in the 800m, she also ran the 3000m.
And I am yet to see any spiral 7 times.

This one's for the Bilbys

The Bilby who thinks he is a goose

Roger has a foot in both camps. As does Thea.


  1. I used to train with the bilbly's - way back in 1996 and 1997.

  2. Does that mean they're both "camp as a row of Bilbies"?

  3. No Ewen, that wasn't my in-tent.
