The Scott Brown story:
Be amazed at how Scott improved his times so rapidly.
And read his plug for the two best running groups in Australia; PCRG, and the speedygeese.
Thanks Scott! Or, should I say, Scott!

Weston Creek Half marathon entry clarification. It is the on-line entry that closes on the 10th. Mail entry closes on Monday 8th. I am now entered.

Training at Dickson oval
We will resume training there at the beginning of April, because Vets track finishes at the end of March. The first training day will be Thursday 1 April, even though some will be away because of the Easter break.
Start time is 5:30pm as usual. Anyone for an early start for a long run first?

Parliament House training will continue as usual this Monday even though it is "Canberra Day"

End of season speedygeese dinner, when and where would you like to have it?

Rod Lynch runs towards the finish line at North Curtin. Rod and his son Brett plan to be training with us when we resume at Dickson in April.


  1. my mile WAS a PB...woo hoo!

    I've now done 3 x mile events in my track "career"...hee, hee...

  2. Yes, can't say I have done a mile on the track before. Not sure I would call it a PB though ;-).

    I'm really looking forward to the recommencement of Dickson training YAY :-)

  3. It's a PB Janene. Miles are harder than 15s -- I should have broken 5 for the mile according to my 1500 times when I was a lad, but never did :(

    Good double from Brett - he seems to have the measure of Nadine in the short stuff.

    I'll join those voting for Calwell Chinese as the end of season dinner venue.
