Training at Parliament House last night in MUCH cooler conditions were Andrew, Bronia, Bronwyn, Ewen, Garry, Gary, me, Jodie, Joel, Katherine, Kylie, Leanne, Maria, Miranda, Neil, Noeline, Richard, Ruth, Steve, Tim, a Tony (visiting), Warrick & Yelena. Miranda left after the early run of 8.2k, while Gary, Ewen, Ruth, Maria & I doubled up. The hills session included 24 sprints up the south-East hill of Parliament House. Three of the highlights: a gaggle of 20 potential goslings jogged by while we ran the hills and I was so tempted to join them; a few drops of rain at one point was all we got of what hundreds of kms away was rumoured to be snow; and after training we enjoyed Caramello Koalas that Bronwyn had brought back from Hobart and had managed to keep away from Jodie, Suze, the dog, and the cat.
