The running part is very simple, find a nice time of the day, put on some good shoes and warm clothing and away you go. Started at work, around the back of Bonython and Gordon, up Tharwa Dr to near Calwell oval, past the shops and home for lunch. Easy.
While out running, time to think, not about work, but other important things. Like the next monthly handicap at Blewitt's Forest on Sunday 31st August. The area and course we have used now for a few years, nice and undulating as it is the last event in the King and Queen of the Mountain series. The problem is there is a World Cup mountain bike event on at Stromlo Forest Park over the weekend, plenty of people will attend.
So many people in fact our start/finish area may be used for overflow parking. A hasty meeting between organisers, Govt officials and ourselves have resolved the problem, well done to our handicapper Alan. Very little will change from our point of view for the running of our monthly handicap, in fact we may have a better parking area to use.
An email to all will be issued as soon as possible to advise of any changes. Unfortunately for runners, the course will stay the same, we just can't organise a bulldozer in time to take the top off the hills and flatten the course out. Hopefully the cattle will have been mooo..ved out.
