The clouds lifted for a short time this morning and we had snow on the hills and mountains. In fact, close to home there was snow on Mt Tennent, Mt Rob Roy and the hills behind Theodore. Snow so close to home happens most winters and looks great.
The run today was in the same conditions as have prevailed all week, no rain the only savior. The wind blew all day, a cold breeze going straight through you, instead of around. Even an after lunch run didn't mean the best conditions. However, the best run of the week, no hill running but against the wind has the same affect.
From work over to the archery area, not a good place on the weekend, but Friday is Ok, past heaps of kangaroos trying to stay warm, to the Tuggie rock wall near the river, then all the way on the river track past Pine Is to the dog exercise area near Point Hut. Against the wind then back to Bonython and back to work.
Googong half marathon on Saturday, will probably do it twice to make a descent run out of day depending on conditions.
