YCRC Summer Series 5k Black Mountain Peninsula 13 March
To celebrate 50 years running I ran this 5k. Long grass; holes; twists and turns; great fun. My lap splits were approximately 7:25, 7:25. 7:20.
16. Geoff Moore M60 22:10
25. Ewen Thompson M50 24:39
33. Maria O'Reilly W55 25:57
44. Caroline Campbell W65 29:14
46. Ruth Baussmann W60 29:33
50 finishers

What I have been reading: finally finished Perdido Street Station, now reading Iron Council. I have a huge backlog of books to read!

What I have been listening to: amongst many others, Pete Murray’s “Blue Sky Blue”, surprisingly good. Also Triple J’s hot 100 volume 19, quite disappointing. I thought there just might be some good tracks other than the two I already have (Lotus Flower; Feeding Line). Not so. It seems Triple J is not for me, I will stick to the music I like. And some 80s music, which I "never" listen to. 1987. First track I played, He's Gonna Step On You Again, that was a good one. Then, Star Trekkin'. AAARRGH. So it is back to contemporary alternative music, thank you very much. And not Triple J.


  1. You forgot Mick Horan and Rob & Carol Ey.

  2. The speedygeese list has been culled from 100 to 50, although it will increase again and it's already 51. Lots of people haven't trained with us for a long time. I was wondering if anyone would notice their own name missing...
