Who are these speedygeese?
I keep 100 names on my current speedygeese list. When new people join I usually drop someone else off the list to keep it to 100: someone who came along once or twice for example but hasn't seen seen since. I have just done a check and 50 of the 100 on the speedygeese contact list have been along to training this year, and 50 haven't for many and varied reasons. I do encourage weekly attendance; obviously consistency in training is important, I also emphasise that runners may come along to training sessions whenever they would like to. In fact it is good that there are many running groups and running opportunities around Canberra, there is a lot of choice. We speedygeese like training together when we are able to. But we are found all over the ACT doing all kinds of training and competing. If you're a "speedygoose" and haven't been along for a while, please drop in to our Monday training session sometime and say hello. We'd like to catch up and find out how you're doing and what your plans are.
New runners welcome! We meet in the underground car park at Australia's Parliament House Canberra, 5:30pm every Monday.
