the thrill of the chase

Thanks Brett for the (May) half marathon photos:

It felt like Kymmy & Michelle were close behind me chasing all the way but I didn't realise at the time how close they really were! Except of course when one or the other appeared on my shoulder. See my look of determination, yes I was pushing really hard to stay ahead.

Dickson Training last night: present in unexpectedly mild conditions, relatively speaking, doing 30 minutes of one minute quick/one minute slow were Colin, Craig (ran early too), Garry, Me, (ran early then jogged), Joel, Maria, Nadine (ran early then ran steady), Thea, & Michelle. Lovely still night for training after a couple of very windy and cold days. It is amazing how many times the weather looks atrocious then when we get out to the open, exposed, wind-swept Dickson oval we get great conditions for running.

Last night's Clarke&Dawe. From

I am still trying to break 20 minutes for 5k, can I do it today at Customs, goodness me it should be easy, but haven’t managed it for a long while now. And there’s a challenge for the rest of you: a caramel koala to the next speedygoose to crack the 20 minute barrier who also hasn’t done it for "a while" (or ever).

Meanwhile, what I am watching: 12 Monkeys (again) with Brad Pitt/Bruce Willis. And LOR2, The Two Towers (again). All on the bigger TV screen, cool.


  1. I hope that's an XXXXL caramel koala :o). It won't be me any time soon. The chronic fatigue has returned and it's back to 7 min kms ...... demoralising to say the least.

  2. Janene - come along and join me at the back - at least we can talk!! I need some company back there:) My pace (what little I used to have) has gone, gone, gone!
