where she ran a creditable 5th place.

I rate the Bush Capital Bush Marathon amongst the very best events available anywhere in Australia.

Last night's training: Noelene, Caroline, Susan, Yelena, Carol, Suzie, Janene, Bronwyn, Nadene, Garry, Brett M, & Roger ran 4 lots of ~850m, handicapped starts, with me supervising.

Roger is fleeing Canberra for the Gold Coast to run in the marathon; his form is good and we wish him well. Ewen is going to be up there too to run in the 10k half marathon hopefully, and Bronwyn the half marathon as well. Please let me know if you are also going up or have a speedy goosey friend who is...
