Two weeks until the final Vets Track night, 29 March. There is an ACTVAC 5000m track championship that night. You enter at the track on the night; entries close 30 minutes before the start.

Then the following Thursday, 5 April, training resumes at Dickson oval, 5:30pm, with an option to come along at 4:00pm for a longer run.

A veritable WALL-E of segways

Seems there are a lot of disabled people standing around by the lake these days

  1. I don't get the Segway thing. Why don't people just enjoy self locomotion?? It doesn't have to be running. Why can't people just walk?? It really is enjoyable for its own sake. Oh, and then there's the health benefit ..... win-win.
