At the Arboretum.

Yours truly charging along in last place. This could be due to having to carry the Telstra Tower on my head. But note that both feet are off the ground, no doubt due to the excellent photographic skills of John Harding (and not due to anyone's superb photoshopping skills, not at all). I am definitely flying - see the eagle shadow, spooky eh? Or it could be a goose.

  1. What's happened to my stretching lady?!

    Great photo - incredible that you can fly with that on your head!

    I spotted a very low flying goose result from the track last week - Mick Horan's 113:06.78 3k. Worth 7.5% A/G. I still want to know how slow one must run to score 1%!

  3. Is a photo of me not enough Jen? Any requests, Andy perhaps? I have plenty of Ewen photos at a pinch.
