Today is Ewen's birthday but it didn't stop him coming out to the Vets' Handicap Run at Mt Majura today. I opted to be on roster duty as it is less than a week to the marathon now. There was quite a good turn out considering today was the Anzac Day public holiday. It felt like a Sunday as we are accustomed to running this event on a Sunday morning. Although it was cold early it turned out to be a gorgeous sunny day. Later a group of us had brunch at Carlo's - beautiful.
At 4.30pm I ran the early speedygeese warm up session only with Jen and Andy while Geoff and Craig led the way. It felt good although my hamstring is still sore and tight. Lots of stretching and exercises will be necessary this week I think.
