It's What is Underneath That Counts

Today:
Distance: 13.85 km
Time: 74' 25"
Rate: 5' 22" per km
Weather: cloudy, temp 12 degrees, humidity 70%, NW wind strong at 30 kmph
Week: 28.3 km, Aug: 312.9 km, Year: 2897.8 km

I'm playing with words and images today as the running was not much to write about. Cool day, strong wind, had to push hard to get any where, but a run is a run.

Today, some where in the world an iceberg and the Miss Universe beauty contest collided. As we all were taught at school, an iceberg is only 10% above the water level. The magic and beauty are underwater where we seldom get to look.
A couple of the lucky ones were sent the email with this picture of an iceberg taken off Newfoundland by divers preparing to divert the iceberg from a collision with the an oil rig.
Apparently the sun was just in the right place to get the full picture of all the ice underwater. A great image.

Today Australia's entrant in the Miss Universe finished 4th to Miss Venezuela. I'm no expert as most of the entrants look pretty good to me, but are they 10% good looks and 90% unknown or seldom seen.
May be it's what 's underneath that really counts ?

Ewen, I call a lap of LBG flat. What hills ?

  • They all looked pretty much the same to me too (pretty). Wonder if any of them run? Cool photo.

    A lap of Central or East Basin is flat. All the normal hills - GG's, after Scrivener, Hospital Hill. Plus two extra ones - Regatta Point and Achies!
