pond, flood, ocean

Amy Pond is my new pin-up girl. I would hate to think she might be phased out before the end of this series of Doctor Who?

But Kelley Flood is my hero!

Great Ocean Road 45k official results
Kelley Flood 3:43:02 (marathon split 3:26:48)
Michael Thompson 3:47:01.77 (marathon split 3:29:33)
Elle Knight 4:05:26 (marathon split 3:46:29)
Mick Horan 4:16:20 (marathon split 3:58:41)
I was telling the training group last night that Kelley had run 3:48 but actually it was 3:43! I also said she won the W50s but actually she won the W45s. Not my error, what can you rely on these days when the official website tells lies??? Kelley, winning the W45s is even better than winning the W50s! What a performance.

Thorn between two roses

Last night we enjoyed another great training session, 19 runners at Parliament House. First we were warned not to train on the fore-court, we never do, that's only the personal trainers doing their thing; then we ran the second last of our 950m intervals around the exercise circuit; a couple of runners opted out and ran under the lights on the road rather than risk running off the lower track in the dark. Christopher did well remembering names as he did the introductions this week. Participating were Andrew, Bronia, Bronwyn, Caroline, Christopher, Colleen, Craig, Emma, Ewen, me, Helen, Jennifer, Jodie, Joel, Neil, Rachelle, Richard, Ruth &.


  1. It's very easy to see why you are fan of Amy Pond and Kelley Flood! Way to go speedy geoff :-)

  2. You are an easy marker, I thought Chris struggled!!

  3. Yes, according to Chris, Kathryn was there!

    Amy needs to start running in the sun and she might pick up a bit of the Kelley tan.
