Running in the rain. Our rain gauge shows 44mm since Saturday, but a little bit of rain won't stop us training tonight. After weeks totalling 15k, 10k, 8k, 13k, 27k, 27k, 70k, 40k, 30k, I managed another 70k last week and would like to increase it to 80k or so this week. Today's target is 16k.

Candid Canberra #17: my goodness!

  1. Hey Geoff! Congratulations on the anniversary. What a gorgeous picture of Jenny. Hoping to come back to Speedygeese soon when I have a bit more fitness back and can find a willing "slowy" to be my buddy (Sindia has left Australia and Kim is pregnant!).

  2. Apart from the hair and fashion, she hasn't changed much.

    I'd love to know what's in the back of that ute!
