This is our 2,000th post, not counting static pages. It all started in January 2005, when Ewen advised me that a blog would be an effective way of promoting communication to and within the training group. There were 15 posts in January 2005, starting on January 18 with "Up and Running". The vision articulated there has been fulfilled with posts daily up to the present, and no plans to wind up any time soon.  Recently we have branched out into Facebook, because (a) Facebook is even more interactive than Blogger, (b) many more speedygeese have Facebook accounts than have Blogger accounts, and (c) Facebook is the most popular and fastest growing site of any kind in the world. Nevertheless this blog will continue in its present format, supplemented by the Facebook group, with little overlap as far as content is concerned.

Finishing the Half Marathon...

And soon after (from the Broulee Runners' blog)
Thank you Weston Creek for emailing us our finish photos!


  1. Woo hoo - congratulations on your 2000th post - that's amazing! You motivate just so many people. Thank you! Great Half Marathon photos too - yay, speedycoach - honk, honk, honk!

  2. Yes, congratulations! Keep up the blogging for sure, facebook, is probably better for some, but if you want to get with the times get a "Twitter" account.

    Nice half too, you are still pumping out the fast times Speedygeoff.

  3. 2000! Seems like only yesterday. I can never find anything on Facebook (except for a million announcements by Katygreaty that her behind is still itching), so this is better for me.

    I wonder what cheeky comment Vince is making on the PA?

  4. Cheeky! I heard Vince saying that I was well-known for coaching many runners around Canberra. So you all got a mention!

  5. And a great read they have been too. Look forward to Moore!

  6. 2000 posts is a great achievement in the cyber world.
    Long may it run.
