Drum roll, please. Ladies and Gentlemen, the entries are in for the inaugural Cool Running team in the Canberra Times Fun Run on 18 September. A small, but select number of (almost) perfectly formed Chicky-Babes shall be running in Cool Running clobber, spanning a few decades of experience.

Our team is headlined by the illustrious LuckyLegs, star of New York and Mittagong's preeminent sportsperson. We are ably assisted by Strewth, who recently returned from an international season of running in Europe to help us. Ironwoman and seasoned marathoner CJ will provide our endurance base, whilst we will successfully bamboozle the other teams with our secret weapon of youth, tenacity and stunning red hair in the form of Aki. Our likelihood of winning is only limited by the number of other teams entered in our category. As I don't know of any other teams who have entered (however, I must admit I have not asked a soul), so far so good!

Great turn-up at Customs today ~ most noticeable was the number of women, 8!, certainly a record in the 16 months I've been going. Good to catch up with people on a pleasant Spring day. I am feeling better and more confident about the Marathon. 9 sleeps to go.

    You're sure to win the style category, with the wearing of Cool Running gear.

    CJ looked great in her Cool Running gear at the recent Vets Half Marathon, she stood out in the apparel, so five together will certainly be noticed.

    And the team's running talent is unmatched. :-)

    I'm really glad to hear that you are feeling better. Only 8 sleeps to go now!

    Wow, what a sensational team of chickybabes, both in talent and style!! Good luck - at the very least you will look great on the big day :-) J

    Great Stuff !

    I shall certainly be cheering the official 'CR Chickybabes Team' on in the CTFR.

    I hope you don't mind me wearing my CR singlet at the same event...

    I wear it for all my races and would hate to run without it on the day.

    Well, what can I say! What an introduction - lets hope we can keep up our side of the bargain! I am doing plenty of eating and coffee drinking - not so much running, which is a bit scarey knowing that the marathon is only 7 sleeps away now. Yikes!

    One heck of a team! go team CR Chickybabes!

    Your marathon is only 1 and a half sleeps away for me. :)

    Woo hoo - how exciting - a real chickybabe CR team and what an introduction!! We'll knock 'em dead!! If nothing else we'll have lots of fun - we must make sure we have a team photo! And Griffin you should join us for the photo shoot!! Do hope you can gain some sleep FD and feel well rested for the marathon next weekend. You've certainly done the training.
