A hot day was forecast and that is how it turned out. Sunny and warm at 6:30 am start and it only got hotter as we ran towards Wanniassa Hills, then on to Isaacs Ridge. You could see the heat over Woden as we came off the top of Isaacs and headed to the twin drains under Hindmarsh Dr at Garren where the mountain bikes finish their leg of the Triple Tri.
We followed the mountain running leg over Red Hill, then down to the drain at Curtin, to eventually stop at Kerrie T's house near the south Curtin oval.
A welcome cold drink & bottle refill, before continuing on to Oakey Hill, the base track of Mt Taylor, Farrer Ridge, down thru Gowrie and eventually home as the temp reached 37 degrees. Too hot for running, but got close to the required distance.
A tough day out, and well done to everyone that ran, cycled or did some exercise in the great outdoors today.
Hopefully a thunder storm, with rain, hail & some wind will cool the landscape down tonight.
