The first Wednesday of the month is "T-Bone Cup" day at the BBQ Stakes. Corporate teams and ring-ins compete against each other in this weekly handicap event, running the 6k course in reverse. 62 runners competed on this perfect first day of winter, and the handicapper had done his homework, with most finishing in a shoulder-to-shoulder sprint.

After another cold morning (check the weather at the bottom of this blog page ~ -4.6*C today), there was a wonderful intense blue sky and no discernible breeze. My ankle was again stiff and sore to run on, especially with the uphill start, however this little duck wasn't going to let that stop her! Too slow on the ascents, better on the descents, I had a blistering last kilometre, finishing just beyond mid-field at 34th of the 62.

After the post race bon hommie, I thought that I would use the opportunity to run in the area and did an easy (read:slow) 10kms around and up Mt Taylor. Think the 2nd run leg of the Sri Chinmoy Triple Tri. I really enjoyed this, and am looking forward to another easy rambling run for fun tomorrow. The weather is perfect in the middle of the day, and it is so good for the soul.

A long, tiring AGM last night, trying to enthuse myself to head out for a Tom Keneally lecture tonight. I'll enjoy it, but feel like just curling up with the cat tonight and vegging out. Or zenning it.
