Joel had a good interval session this morning. Yelena and I yelled support. Also sighted on the lovely green grass were Ken, Amanda W, Katie, Maria & Tori. I enjoyed some barefoot running and will do more in the new year, maybe twice a week.

Competing in Wynnum on Saturday was Gary Bowen, 10th in 21:48. And planning to run at Albert Park next week is Cathy Newman. So if you are travelling interstate, go run in a parkrun event! The parkrun website keeps track of all performances, run counts, PBs as if it were one big event. Which it is. And worldwide, at that!
