A few drops of rain overnight caused concern that the heavy rain due later today had arrived early. It wasn't to be although the overcast sky meant it could happen any time. We were very lucky with just a bit of drizzle to start, easing up to remove spray jacket after half an hour.
We did the Ewen 11 bridges run, I didn't count them but there were a few as we headed towards Campbell Park, the track around Mt Ainslie, down Anzac Parade after the War Memorial to stop for a comfort break near Stage 88 in Commonwealth Park.
That was last of the off road as we crossed LBG on Commonwealth Avenue heading towards Kingston and the new residential buildings on the Foreshore development. Not overly impressed with what has happened there, hopefully the landscape will change with some trees.
Jen & Andy were going well on the flat as they had both done all run, I was impressed with Jen with only a year of running, good pace on the flat through the wetlands and on to the finish. She has Weston Creek half marathon on her plan, she should go well with some consistency in her running.
Today was the last run of any length for Softshoeshuffle & myself with Maroondah Dam on next weekend.
