This week – Tuesday 12th November 2013

Hi All

After a long run of great weather we finally struck a not so good one – but not to be deterred, we saw 57 of you participate this week, taking our progressive total attendance for the year to 2996. At this stage in 2013 we are already 200 up on the total attendance in 2012 – with still 5 Tuesdays to go !.

This week, due to the weather we retreated to our popular Hill Circuit – around the Lake. Whilst it was better than running on the grass on such a night – we all still got pretty drowned – including me !

Just 1 new member this week – James Brooks, but were pleased to welcome lots of you back after absences of varying lengths of time – Alison Thorburn, Mikhail Bhatia, Lachlan Preston, Brian He, Michelle Furniss, Elizabeth Chen & Keith Vanhaltren

· Our best wishes to Ebony Gilbert for a big result in the Half Ironman event at Shepparton this coming weekend

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’ – as I’ve said 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 usual weekly Hill session will be on Saturday next, 16th November 2013, at Jells Park. Even though I can’t make it (I’ll be in Bendigo for the weekend) – the session will be in the most capable hands this week of Daniel & hopefully a few others.

Meet on Saturday morning at the usual spot, ready to run, at 8.30am SHARP (please try to 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.

I will be back on board for the session on Saturday week - November 23rd.

As usual we will be in action on Tuesday evening next week, 12th November – ready to run - at 6pm SHARP

In 2013, as usual, 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 (Wellington Rd end) of Oval 1.

Only a short walk from there.

But 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 5pm.
