  • "Canberra runner Rob Ginnivan running a half marathon on a treadmill in a hot air balloon above the ACT for Heart Foundation this morning"
  • "Here’s 2 great reasons all our marathoners should be selected for the London Olympics" (inside athletics).
  • "We're gearing up for Ginninderra parkrun #4 this weekend. Who's going to take on Marty Dent's new course record?!"

  • I do plan to be at Parkrun, this week and every Saturday. Reminder - you MUST register in advance and you must bring along your bar-code! One of the four of us last week hadn't done so and is not in the results.

    Last night's speedygeese dinner: Alison, Cookie, Andy, Bronwyn, Cathy & Graham, Christopher, Colin, Garry, Helen, Janene, Joel & Yelena, Kym, Maria, Neil, Warrick & Vanessa, Jenny & I were there. Lovely Thai food at the Lemon Grass restaurant. But it's back to Dickson next Tuesday!


    1. Ooooh .... I didn't realise you needed to pre register for the Saturday Parkruns. That's a bit of a disincentive for those of us who find ourselves on Saturday mornings responding either positively or negatively to the week just gone and either being "up and ready to "go" or ... not".

      Did you have 22 for the Speedygeese dinner?

    2. You only have to pre-register ONCE then run as often as you like. Canberra AND elsewhere around the world! apparently.
      And we had 20 at the dinner. Plus the restaurant was full... on a Tuesday night. Very popular.

    3. Ah, I can't reply to individual comments anymore.

      Jog, yes it's easy and free. You'll need a printer to print your bar code which you bring to every event (leave it in the car). You don't need to carry it with you in the race.
