Chris - have a great run/walk and enjoy the experience!
Torque Steer -always lovely to get caught up in the marathon fever!
Ceal - well done on the 10 miles - great stuff!
Impey - nice work at the Parkrun!
Aws - the run/walk thing is really working for you - nice even timing!
Columba - you seem to be enjoying all that Galloway has to offer too!
I did a xcountry relay race yesterday - 3 in a team with 3km each. I ran last. There wasn't many teams, and by the time I got to run they were very spread out, so it was a bit of a time trial really, except near the end when a young girl flew past me!
It was decision time - first run of the new season and I decided to run for my old club, so had to go tell the Y that I was not running for them - think most of them understood.
I am a life member of Owairaka, and they are trying hard to bring back the club. I will miss the pack running with the Y though. Maybe I could join the Y too as a social member but just register with Athletics Auckland with Owairaka.
Anyway - it was hot, ran 15.17 for the 3km so not very inspiring! Did have to negotiate a few hurdles and one hill and our team did beat the Y team.
The main reason I decided to run for Owairaka is the 50th running of the Rotorua marathon. It would be nice to have the Owairaka singlet on for the event.
Not feeling crash hot today, Mae had a bad night, so don't think I'll go too far this morning as I have to take her with me.
