Not very often do I enter races anymore but this past fortnight included a race on the east coast of Tasmania at Freycinet National Park.
Although only 29 kms long, it included the world famous Wineglass Bay beach, rated by some travel agents in the world in the top 10. No doubts now in my mind, it's truly spectacular.
After Wineglass Bay, then the rough trails up Mt Graham to make a 960 metre race height gain.
Then today, in contrast to sea level beach running, a group of us hit the local mountains now winter has arrived. Winter means snow, and plenty of it today.
Snow everywhere on a trail to Mt Connection & Collins Bonnet. A beautiful sunny clear day. Dry powder snow was perfect. Winter running at it's best.
