Hi All

I can’t believe how lucky we have been to have enjoyed so many great nights for running during the last few months - & last night was no exception.

Attendance was again quite amazing – 79 of us !

For this week’s session we tackled the tough Mona Fartlek – a structured session on the grass involving;

2 x 90 sec – 90 sec recovery jogging/float

4 x 60 sec – 60 sec recovery jogging/float

4 x 30sec – 30 sec recovery jogging/float

4 x 15 sec – 15sec recovery jogging/float

Warm up/Warm down at least 15 min each – but more encouraged if time – esp in the warm down

We had an amazing 7 new members join us this week – Anna Graeser, Laura Koenders, Valentina Lorenzetti, Cynthia Vari, Chris Howley, Laura Morley & Elli Makela. And it was nice to see Frederico rejoin us.

We welcome all of you to our great squad and hope you enjoyed the experience.

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.

Congratulations to those of you who participated in the ‘Tan Relays’ event last weekend – details of our squad members runs are on our facebook & also on the website – addresses are below !

Saturday Morning Hill Session at Jells Park

Our usual weekly Hill session will be on Saturday next, 28th September 2013, at Jells Park & I’ll be there.

We’ll meet 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.

Hope to see you all next Saturday morning – & in large numbers


· Congratulations to squad members Jon Elliott, on becoming a father, & Rick Watkins a grandfather, both for the first time. Willow Grace Elliott was born on 20thSeptember (6lb 9 oz), The proud parents – Sarah & Jon, & Grandparents – Rick & Jennie, are all doing very well.

· We say good bye for 6 months to regular Run Monash member Tony Frantz. Tony is accompanying partner Di (a Run Monash member also) to South Korea where she will be involved in a bilingual children’s theatre show

· With the Melbourne Marathon & supporting races just a little over 2 weeks away I wish you all good luck in your final preparations. Look for me at the drink station at the 7k point in the marathon as you fly by.

As usual we will be in action on Tuesday evening next week, 24th September – 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 & parking is very handy - enter from Ring Road East & go around to the Baseball field along the road around the back (Wellington Rd end) of Oval 1. You can park at the rear of the pavilion if space – or on the dirt road above if you like

Time Trials – 2kms

We’re planning the next Time Trial for Tuesday evening November 26th – so a little under 9 weeks for all of you to get in a good preparation & chalk up a big improvement on your current best time for this most popular run.

· Time trial Number 4 Results are up on website!

AV Tan Relays (3.8k circuit) last Saturday – 21st September

Congratulations to the large number of Run Monash members who participated – results will be here soon!
