Now we are ten!

The first post, up and running, promised great things:
Which read:

"Welcome to our new interactive web site. You may start using it right away. Topics of interest will be posted regularly. We welcome comments and questions on any running related topic - the sky's the limit.

"This site will feature all kinds of running writing - sharing ideas, getting feedback, announcing awards, messages about social events, ideas, hints, advice, discussions; links to other running and coaching sites of interest.

"There will be information about training and racing dates, Team Moore training group results including the prestigious (weekly) Chocolate Frog and (six-monthly) Caramel Koala awards for outstanding performances.

"And of course other things of interest to our group of runners - runner profiles, announcements about how we went last week, birthdays particularly new Masters age groups, hatches matches & dispatches.

"New people wanting training can find out what the training group offers and contact us via the site.

"And PHOTOS will be posted!

"This can be whatever you want it to be! So please join in now, start by adding a comment to this post. Just try it!"

And this is the 3,860th post. 386 per year. We are going strong!

Meanwhile, here is a penguin.


  1. Wow. Ten years! Stop doing that - you're making me feel sprightly.

  2. Hmmm. That gives me an idea for the next song. If I can find a rhyme for "sprightly". Nightly? Unsightly? Sounds promising.

  3. Woah, ten years AND on the same blog is very impressive! Happy Birthday to the Speedygeese Blog!
