Some say sport and running teach you great lessons about life. But are they always positive lessons? For example, while self-confidence is a good thing, self-admiration is not necessarily a virtue.

“Psychologist Jean Twenge of San Diego State University and co-author W. Keith Campbell of the University of Georgia say research shows more young people today have 'narcissistic traits' than in previous generations”. Read the full article here.

Speedygeese of a feather, however, flock together, and when they do so everyone is encouraged, and "celebrity status" is not an issue. Here is where we are gathering on Monday week; most members of the training group have received this invitation by now. If you haven't, you are still invited...

You are welcome to bring family, friends, to the speedygeese feast. Just let me know how many are coming. Please respond to me by this Friday!

Enjoying the Marathon

Enjoying the Track
I noticed today that Rod & Amanda Lynch's son Brett has the same running style as his Dad, pictured.


  1. You look far too relaxed to be running a marathon in the time you did!

  2. That's Christine looking good, not me. She ran a negative split too. She's the only one who passed me- several times too- towards the end.

  3. I thought it was the spectator in the Weston Creek tracksuit who was enjoying the marathon.
