Moving is Freedom

Winter looms
I never do much running in June and July in Canberra, it is too cold, it is simply too difficult to get out the door when there are plus-or-minus single digit degrees on the thermometer. So the choices we have are to hibernate, or to fly north. I choose to fly north for the next two weeks.

Where Is The Love (1987)
The cry of the city, the mourning in the streets. Have we run out of pity? Do the hurting ones we meet? Do we care anymore? Do we feel anymore? Where is the love? When the neon has faded from the sky. When the glitter's gone, and you're on your own, where is the love? In the still cold of the night (still cold). In the hearts of the few. There's a secret (a secret). There's a doorway. A passage to the other side. Do we care anymore? Do we need to any more? Where is the love? When the neon has faded from the sky. When the glitter's gone, and you're on your own, where is the love? Where is the love? Where is the love? Can you show me the love?

Last night's CD launch was awesome, a group of close friends listening to Graeme Hush and the band playing songs from the new double album "Home: Songs from the journey: 1982-2006". 35 tracks. Powerful stuff. And surprise, Mon was on keys/backing vocals at the launch. Just like old times.

Last night at the track
Only nine of us braving the cold, with me holding the watch, Adam, Annette, Colin, Ken, Maria, Matthew, Neil and Tony ran 20 x 20 seconds on each minute.

ABS Fun Run
From where I was running in the field, I could see Ken & Katie run about 30 minutes, I ran 31 minutes, and Amanda 32. The distance is about 7.3k but seems longer. It (30.57) was all I could do; I think I need a holiday.

So it's CDs into the car and off to Brisbane for a fortnight. Yay!

FOOTNOTE
We have learned that Katie has won the 'Seasonally Adjusted Runner' prize in yesterday's ABS Fun Run. Maths may not be pointless after all!
