The big weekend of racing is only 16 days away.
On Sunday 13th I will be cheering the marathon from around the 34k/37k mark, somewhere near the Weston Park end of Yarralumla.

Speedygeese training: for those not peaking for the marathon (or ultra), speedygeese training at Dickson Oval will begin on Thursday 10 April at 5:30pm. As in previous years when we have trained at Dickson, I will be arriving there before 4:00pm and heading off for a longer run first.
