While some of us ran in Saturday's Half Marathon, the Metro runners still met at Acton Ferry Terminal for their regular training run. Present were Susan, Ann, Mary, Caleb, Bon, Chuan, and Amanda H I think. Some of them are training up for a Half Marathon on 10 April at the Australia Running Festival in Canberra.
In Melbourne today my wife Jenny is participating in a memorial service for Gordon Stirling. Gordon was a strong positive role model for Jenny in Jenny's teenage years and played a major part in making her the beautiful young woman she became. Also attending the funeral are Rod and Brett L: it just so happens that Brett is Gordon's great-grandson.
Note: As Wednesday is the Australia Day holiday, the BBQ Stakes has been shifted to Thursday. And Sunday's 4k/8k handicap events start at 8:30am, not 9:00am, to avoid the heat.
Racing a half marathon, blazing sun, humidity, and much of the run on concrete.
Photo by Miranda. Concrete is not the best surface to race on, so I was pleased with the lunar racers I wore, they provided just enough cushioning at my slowish pace. My feet can get very sore, and I might try something better for the next road race, Saucony Kinvaras perhaps?
