It's raining again (as I compose this Friday afternoon as an advance post) . Here's a photo of a spiderweb from a couple of days ago after the rain.

Thanks Craig for lap scoring my 10k. My first 5k split equalled my best recent 5k anywhere, my second 5k split was another 10 seconds faster.

Three Gold Medallists

Friday's Customs Joggers 5k: Tim Calver went for time, without his 10kg backpack for once, and ran 19:11. After Thursday night's track, Bronwyn was 25-ish, and Caroline and I were 29-ish.


  1. Fourth time lucky for this comment. It is not saving for some reason! If it doesn't work this time I'll try another time. I just want to say there were some impressive track times on Thursday including yours speedycoach - fantastic result! The photo is taken on my iphone so the quality is a bit dodgy!

  2. There's a star shining over CJ's head. Does that mean she's the Messiah? Or just a very naughty girl?

  3. CJ is not a naughty girl. Even if she is the object of desire by strange men who are into female wrestlers, that doesn't make her a naughty girl.
