Hi All

As usual we will be in action on Tuesday evening next week, 17thDecember – ready to run, at 6pm SHARP. This will be our last run together for 2013 – so let’s see the years running out with a huge attendance

We’re located at the Baseball field, & using the pavilion over there. Access by car is quite good & for handy parking - enter from Ring Road East & find a spot along the road around the back of Oval 1(Wellington Rd end). Only a short walk from there to the baseball pavilion.

New & potential Run Monash members please let me know if you’d like more detailed directions

You can no longer park at the rear of the pavilion – or on the gravel road above. Parking in other nearby areas is free after 4pm.

· We will have not meet on Tuesday 24th December or Tuesday 31stDecember - but of course I’ll expect you all to get in a run on each of those days.

We will be back in action – usual place, day, & time in early 2014 – Tuesday 7thJanuary will be our first gathering for 2014

This week – Tuesday 10th December 2013

Lots of apologies this week – and numbers were quite low – just 50 of us – but this was expected with Christmas parties, shopping and of course a great many of you returning to your homes for the long break, at places far distant from Monash Clayton.

So it was back to normal this week – and we stayed on the baseball oval grass which had been freshly mowed & was actually excellent for the growing band of those who are trying barefoot for the sessions.

This week’s session was the pretty tough 8 x 60sec efforts followed by 4 x 30 sec efforts & this was sensibly handled by everyone.

No new members this again week, but a couple of English visitors – Keith & Marcus - who were here in Melb for a just a week or so joined us for a one off experience. Jon Elliott made a welcome return after injury and Marc Chew also reappeared after a longish absence.

Thanks to everyone for your ongoing commitment to Run Monash.

· In recent times we have welcomed lots of new potential squad members to Run Monash. If you are one of these – but have not returned please let me know by return email if you will be back. I really can’t keep people on the mailing list who don’t intend to participate with us on a regular basis.

Thanks again to those who can’t attend who send me an ‘apology’ –this demonstrates more than just a casual involvement in our ‘Run Monash’ squad.

· Would you all please make a special effort to mark off/highlight your name on my attendance list each week as that’s the only way I have of keeping track of attendance numbers.

Saturday Morning Hill Session at Jells Park

Our next Hill session will be on Saturday morning next, 14th December 2013, at Jells Park.

We’ll meet at the usual spot on Saturday, ready to run, at 8.30am SHARP (please be on time) - out the front of the cafe – ‘Madeline’s’.

Enter Jells Park from the entrance in Waverley Rd extension – opposite the Glen Waverley Golf Course.

Great turnout last Saturday – 30 +, and a terrific morning for running.

Hope to see a big turnout again next Saturday morning, even though once again many have track commitments in the afternoon.
