A Fast Moving Echidna

Today:Distance:  14.4 km
Time:  80' 21"
Rate: 5' 35" per km
Weather: sunny, temp 25 degrees, humidity 28%, wind NW 19 kmph
Week:  48.2 km,  Oct:  266.05 km, Year: 2163.85 km

Another beaut spring day in the nation's capital.
The Queen is here at the moment, but she is staying in Yarralumla. Apparently the G-G had to move out of her room to make way for the Queen & her hubbie. They could have stayed at my place and had their own room, plus own private facilities. Close to public transport, nice running trails close, quiet neighbours, no road noise. May be next time.
Enjoyed the nice day, running near Woodcock Dr in Gordon so not near the river, I came up to a fast moving echidna, nice solid size. As I slowed getting closer, down goes the head and became a small prickly bundle. So cute.
Finished as I often do, with 10 minutes in the river, so nice.


  • I've only seen a few of those on the run. Good value. Need to see the Queen and D of E, as their trips to our running paradise are rare.
