Fisher's Ghost 10km
....friendly ghosts & friendly runners!
10km Fun Run : (Stop Watch Time)
about 30 seconds faster than 2005 & 90 seconds faster than 2004.
I know I say it every year, but it's one hell of a tough & hilly, 2 lap course! Well organised, plenty of drink stations - thank you to the many volunteers who were spread out just about everywhere along the course.
Cloud cover gave some relief from the heat, but the flies!! And they've become immune to all insect repellents!
I didn't win one of the 4 mountain bikes, but I was lucky with the random draw prizes : a large Asics over-the-shoulder duffel bag with various goodies inside, including 2 pairs of Asics socks, size 12+! ........they'd fit a giant; I'll take them to Canberra on Thursday & give them to coach, Ewen. What a lovely surprise for him!!
Well, it's been a great weekend : Saturday - my best Time Trial ever over 1500m and today, Sunday, my best time in 3 years on the Fisher's Ghost 10km course.
Making the day even better was meeting CR never gives up & family; also Superflake .......here we are clutching our age-category trophies!
Canberra ACTVAC on Thursday night where the main event for me will be the 1500m track race!
