Hi all

Trevor/TV & Len

We’ve enjoyed our last run together for 2013, and we’ll be back in action on Tuesday evening 7th January 2013 – ready to run, at 6pm SHARP.

In 2014 nothing will change, we’ll be 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

There is no parking at the rear of the pavilion – or on the gravel road above. Parking is very handy however in other nearby areas & is free after 4pm.

This week – Tuesday 17th December 2013

Pleasingly, on another terrific Melbourne evening, we had a great attendance – 55 of us toed the line for an excellent session – and Len was the ‘whistleblower’ .

The ‘Mona Fartlek’ session, a favorite of most, was handled really very well by everyone – well done !

Once again we stayed on the baseball oval grass which was again in top condition, especially for the growing band barefoot runners when we are on the grass.

We welcomed 3 new members week – Andrew Tunne, Nader Chmait, & Attila Tokai – we trust you all greatly enjoyed the experience & found our group most friendly.

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

Our special best wishes to our overseas squad members who have returned home to celebrate Christmas & the New Year – we look forward to welcoming you back in 2014

· 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, 21st 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.

Hope to see a big turnout next Saturday morning to top off a great year of running & perhaps to enjoy a quiet chat/coffee at the tea rooms afterwards if time.

· No session on Saturday 28th – but we’ll be back in action on Saturday 4th January 2014
