Does anybody remember how hot it was in 1985? This is another old photo of a club race in Canberra. As it was taken in February it must be from a Summer Series race. I'm not sure which one - looks like somewhere in Stromlo Forest. There don't appear to be many women. You might notice the lack of shirts. I can't spot Geoff, but I know there are some people from this photo who are still running.
Customs on Friday
I ran my first Customs Joggers 5k handicap on Friday. Unfortunately it was the alternate 'Floriade' course. When you're not fit, even speedbumps feel like hills. On the Floriade course there are three hills. The infamous 'Hospital Hill', the museum hill and the hill running back to the finish. On this last hill I was caught by a large number of runners including Allrounder. Although it was a PW for 5k (27:13), I was happy as my calf felt totally normal during the run. This Google Earth image shows a good view of the run and the Australian Museum. I wasn't quite as wonky as the blue line suggests. That's just Forerunner Man doing his thing.
