Time: 24' 00"
Weather: sunny, temp 23 degrees, humidity 75%, wind calm
We drove from Gold Coast to Caboolture after waiting for peak hour traffic to finish on the Gateway Bridge in Brisbane. Stopped in at JohnnyAppleseed GPS to see if the Garmin could be saved. Some good news and bad news from them.
Good news is it is not water damage, bad news is the whole unit has stopped,buttons won't work, but Garmin may, just may, replace it even though it is well out of warranty. Even so, I won't have it for the Glasshouse run, but may have a new one sent to home by the time I get back next week.
An easy jog around the parklands here in Caboolture,mid afternoon to acclimatize. Today Friday, it rained overnight, just enough to settle the dust, the track should still be dry and dusty. Temp forecast for Saturday is top at 25 degrees, there is plenty of shade so won't be too bad.
Race briefing tonight at 6.00 pm followed by pasta and a chat with other runners. Getting nervous, should be Ok, really just aiming to finish in one piece.
