Today, Monday, I have just been for a 15km run from home and round the lake. Tonight is the speedygeese dinner so there is no official training session. It has been a lovely day in Canberra today but now there are threatening black clouds on the horizon.
I've been married almost 46 years, have 3 children and 5 grandchildren,. Four of our grandchildren live in Canberra. Our youngest daughter and her husband and baby live in Sydney.I was born in NZ but have lived in Canberra since 1981. I have retired from managing an Australian Apprenticeships Centre and am now loving working part-time at The Runners Shop. I started running in 1995. I prefer long distance running and have run 16 Canberra marathons, 1 Gold Coast marathon, 1 New York marathon, several half marathons and a number of triathlons. I ran my first Canberra marathon at age 50 and my 10th at 60 which means I am a Griffin in the ACT (ie having run 10 Canberra Marathons). I was happy to finish the Canberra Ultra Marathon (50km)in April 2006 in under 5 hours (4hrs 56mins). I also enjoy swimming, social cycling, exercising at the gym, travel and reading a good book. My husband David is officially retired. He keeps extremely fit playing squash and training for and competing in local, interstate and international duathlons and triathlons.
