Progress?

last week target 80k actual 60k
this week’s target 80k plus?
song of the week"The Blues" Switchfoot, from "Nothing is Sound"

Is this the New Year or just another night?
Is this the new fear or just another fright?
Is this the new tear or just another desperation?

Is this the finger or just another fist?
Is this the kingdom or just a hit n' miss?
A misdirection, most in all this desperation

Is this what they call freedom?
Is this what you call pain?
Is this what they call discontented fame?

It'll be a day like this one
When the world caves in
When the world caves in
When the world caves in

I'm singing this one like a broken piece of glass
From broken arms an' broken noses in the back
Is this the New Year or just another desperation?

You're pushing till you're shoving
You bend until you break
Till you stand on the broken fields where our fathers lay

It'll be a day like this one
When the world caves in
When the world caves in
When the world caves in
When the world caves in
When the world caves in
When the world caves in

There's nothing here worth saving,
Is no one here at all?
Is there any net left that could break our fall?

It'll be a day like this one
When the sky falls down and the hungry and poor and deserted are found
Are you discontented? Have you been pushing hard?
Have you been throwing down this broken house of cards?

It'll be a day like this one
When the world caves in
When the world caves in
When the world caves in

Is there nothing left now?
Nothing left to sing
Are there any left who hasn't kiss the enemy?
Is this the New Year or just another desperation?

Does justice never find you? Do the wicked never lose?
Is there any honest song to sing besides these blues?

And nothing is okay
Till the world caves in
Till the world caves in
Till the world caves in
Till the world caves in
Till the world caves in
Until the world caves in
Until the world caves in
Until the world caves in
Until the world caves in
Until the world caves in
Until the world caves in

SMH Half Marathon
Martin first Anthony second. Go ACT!
I haven't forgotten that Anthony trained with us for twelve months as he got his athletics career going.

  1. Great photo of the SMH SG.

    What about the other result on Sunday ~ Aki came a close 3rd in the Italo-Australian Fun Run. There is no stopping her!

    Any new photos of the kitchen, or are you out having dinner?

  2. The kitchen is in dozens of bits in our lounge room.
    Aki was third in an Italian Fun Run? I didn't know she had Italian origins. In fact I just deduced she was an Aussie. Every little bit of our new kitchen is stamped "AKI", Australian Kitchen Industries. Now we know!

  3. Lol, just can't get rid of me - even when I can't run. Always good to know. :) Some good times at Lyneham the other day!

  4. Anthony was looking really good when he lapped me! The photo looks like it's at the end of the first lap.
