Day 4, Second Ashes Test.

Nails bitten.

Monday Edit:

Well, what can I say? I'm not a betting man, but I would never have predicted that result, and such a rivetting hour and a half of cricket last night. I feel compelled to record this as a training session, as my heart rate was definately higher watching this than it had been on many a recent run!

To add to the cliches, the winner was cricket (hopefully the real, five day game, too!) and it will ensure that the rest of the series is interesting.

Report of yesterday's run. I wasn't the only slow time. (Thank heavens!)

Farrell-Marshall Mt Ainslie Run Report
It seemed Sunday was a day of rest for many, whilst others were out participating in various other events in the Canberra region. Nevertheless, 16 brave souls participated in the first ever Mt Ainslie run challenge on a great run course in awesome weather conditions on Sunday. Big thanks to Randall Fitzsimons who prepared a great course with white spraypaint being used for arrows and once the spray paint exploded all over his hands about 3/4 of the way around, he used some great arrows made of sticks to pave the way for the runners. There was going to be a 5km course and a 10km course but with only one entry in the 5km, Louise Bartlett decided to test herself and do the 10km run as well - and did it in fine style as well. Runners were set off in true handicap style ensuring nearly all runners finished within a couple of minutes of each other. One of the participants from last years novice program, Glenn North showed he really knows how fast he is with an amazing 2 second difference between his guess and his actual time to take the inaugural trophy and $50 for his efforts. A distant 2nd in the guessing stakes was Garry Stevens with a 42 second difference and 3rd was Stacie Hall with 75 seconds. The Runners Shop in Phillip were extremely generous with lucky barrel prizes ensuring almost all competitors went home with something for their $5 entry fee which was very much appreciated all round. Again there were no prizes for fastest but Garry Stevens showed a clean pair of heels to lead the way with 43.41 just outpacing Bob Harlow 44.39 and Shane Maundrell on 44.47. Fastest lady for the day was Mel Tipping with 49.39, in front of Carolyn Kramer on 52.50 and Stacie Hall on 54.19. Huge thanks to the Runners Shop and Christine Palmer, Jen Dixon, Joe Andrews and Julia Easthope for volunteering their services on the day. Jen and Julia took many photos which we will put up on the website soon.
