The Canberra Times Family Fun Run and Walk 2006

The little green line on the map is the course.

Got up earlier than usual today to have an early couple of boiled eggs and coffee for breakfast.

Early on, met up with the hordes milling around the baggage truck, and then went looking for the timekeepers to hand over the timing clocks, and James Morris (the official announcer) to hand over the starting pistol, ready and primed for the general Manager of the Canberra Times to commence the run by firing the gun.

Then met Tim Gavel with his family, and their two young children who were looking forward to the event, and met a lot of other runners, including a surprised sighting of Stuart Doyle, back from his performance at the world mountain Running Championship.

Had a few words with Anthony Haber, who was today's male winner, and wished him well, also caught up with him after the run.

Spent a lot of time after the run, distributing the hot off the press edition of the Canberra Runner. So far we have given out over 100 copies personally, with the remainder to be posted this coming mid-week.

Good to hear also that Marty Dent won the Adelaide to Bay race today, with Brett Cartwright and Michael Shelley coming 2nd and 3rd, Lee Troop either 4th or 5th.

Until Next Time.

Still fuelled by bananas, had two today, though they were rather small.
