Comments: I drove to the lake and met up with Mr B and Lorraine and Elaine from his squash group. We ran a gentle 11km from the yacht club to Scrivener Dam and back to the yacht club with a few noticeable hills where we pushed ourselves. It was a stunning autumn day. The sky was clear and blue with not a breath of wind but I have to add it was freezing. There had been a frost and parts of the pedestrian bridge over the water had ice on it as the sun hadn't reached that spot so we had to watch our footing. My fingers were very very cold and didn't warm up until about the 7km mark. The overnight temperature had been minus 6degrees!! However later it reached 17deg which still isn't particularly warm but the sun was lovely. The colours of the autumn leaves on the trees were gorgeous - all oranges, browns and golds. There were hot air balloons floating above us and it really was a glorious day to be alive. It was also great to run with company and I really enjoyed my run.
Later, after my nail appointment, I drove into the mall and met up with CJ and Kezza who has just returned from Alice Springs. It was great to catch up with her again. At night we went to a surprise 50th birthday party for The Hare and that too was a great night catching up with friends.
