It is Autumn at last, and the weather is much more pleasant for running already. So there is no excuse to stay indoors! The ACTVAC Track and Field Championships are on Friday 4, Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 March. The program is available through the ‘News’ section of the ACTVAC website Entries have now closed and there will be no entries on the day. Please note – there will be no track and field program this Thursday night.

I was with Kym at 1k but the very rough going caused me knee problems and I stopped and stretched, then ran with Ewen in the second k on the steep bits. The knee came good and I enjoyed passing people in the last 3k. My new Garmin 405 (which I only bought yesterday before the race) said I ran 5.09k, Ruth's said 5.08k, and given I ran wider than she did, we have synchronicity. The extra distance and tough course means it was a very good run by Kym, I won't be challenging her on the mountain runs this year or ever!
