Congratulations on the safe arrival of Theo. The only Theo I can call to mind is Theodorus Jacobus Lenonardus "Dick" Quax - former world record holder of the 5000m.
He was one of the big 3 in NZ along with Walker and Dixon. He an Walker are on the Auckland City council now.
Another miserable day here today, though did go for a 5km run.
Yesterday a 4km walk, followed by an attempt to get on a bike! My hips are so stiff, I could hardly get on it!
I walked it down the hill to the flat so that I could get some confidence so I could actually get on it. Managed to cycle to the end of the road and back. Bit white-knuckled, but I managed it.
Was going to try again today, but I think I really need to have a dry road!
I've been watching the World Athletic champs. I just love it. NZ doesn't have any super stars, our Valarie Adams is sitting this one out as she hasn't come back into form since her surgery.
Think our only hope will be Nick Willis, so hope he goes well.
