I ran with Ruth for 4k and picked up the pace for the 5th. But a gym session that morning had left me sore in the usual place - lower abdominal muscles! We shall work on it.

ActewAGL 25th Annual Women and Girls’ Fun Run/Walk 2011
Stage 88, Commonwealth Park, Sunday 3 April 2011, 9am
More than 1000 women and girls are expected to participate in this year’s ActewAGL Women and Girls’ Fun Run/Walk.  2011 marks the 25th anniversary of the event.
The event is hosted by the YMCA of Canberra Runners Club and involves the work of about 50 volunteers.  ActewAGL is the major sponsor and The Canberra Times, the major supporting sponsor. 
The event fund-raises for a charity, OvCan, a local ACT Ovarian Cancer Support Group who also raise awareness of ovarian and gynae cancers.  It is a very important time for them as February is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.
The Chief Minister, Jon Stanhope, MLA will start the race at 9am.  He was the originating convenor of the Women and Girls’ Fun Run.
The event provides excellent community footage, especially the mass start at 9am, and aims to promote a healthy lifestyle for women and girls of all ages.
Entrants will include a variety of school, mother and daughter, sister and work/organisation teams.  We also hope to see Sue Counsel and Joan Mallory continue their stunning effort of participating in every single Women and Girls’ Fun Run.
Please visit our website – www.wgfunrun.com.au for more information.
Members of the media are invited to attend the event.

Great to see our Kym running the show this year. Let's all assist her, if we can.

According to a "Teen Health Snapshot", one in four Australian teenagers are FAT, it's official. You'd think they'd have learnt by now? 

Here are some FAT FACTS.
1. There is a GROWING BODY of obesity research. We have now discovered that OBESITY IS REALLY WIDESPREAD, OBESITY IS A GROWING PROBLEM, and OVEREATING HAS HEAVY CONSEQUENCES.

2. Here's a puzzle: Q: What's an anagram for "United States of America"? A: "Dine out, taste a Mac, fries".

C'mon Australia. We can do better than that.
