What absolutely perfect weather for the marathon after all the wet and windy days we have had recently! Perfect temperature, light breeze, shockingly hilly course. Two out of three 'aint bad. Congratulations to all the finishers, there were some sick and sorry runners towards the back of the field. I am so glad I ran my 50k two years ago rather than now!

When I put a photo of Kermit The Frog on my blog two days ago I didn't realise that he would be cycling up and down Banks St at the marathon, or watching from the dog park area. Incidentally the picture included CJ because her old blog name was "Froggie69". I think. Also, the organisers made a big mistake not closing the dog park. It was ridiculous having to let cars through while the runners went out into and back from Weston Park. Maybe next time. Assuming the course is the same, which surely must be questioned too.

Meanwhile back in 1976... my first Canberra marathon... and the fourth I had run.

  1. Thanks for your support speedy leader. Interesting long pants you wore in your first Canberra Marathon. Was it cold that day? You're right. It was a hilly course this year but scenic!!
