TV's Update - Thursday 13th December 2012

posted 12 Dec 2012, 16:19 by Monash Running

This week – Tuesday 11th December 2012


·        FINAL Opportunity – Email Chris Allan ( to book for our great annual Christmas barbeque celebration to be held next Tuesday 18th December (details below). So far the response, about 50 of us,  has been excellent – promises to be a fun event.

·        I’d really like to encourage those of you who we haven’t seen for some time to join us next Tuesday – to help celebrate the best year yet for our great squad.


A hot night on Tuesday this week – but as it turned out, perfect for running


Great to see a few new faces – Kara Gilbert, Catalina Perez, Sam Miller, & Paul Marr’s daughter – Angeline. A warm welcome to each of you.


A big attendance this week – 49 ! – excellent, given that it’s Uni break & lots are out of town – and others tied into Christmas celebrations.


As it was quite hot, we retreated to the shady circuit around the lake and really enjoyed a terrific session. Congrats to all of you on your terrific running this week. Joining me on the sidelines this week were Peter B & Simon B – as well as Gordon of course, so I received some great feedback on your form from them as well.


See Peter’s photos from Tuesday night on our facebook page very soon.


·        Lost / Found – After our session this week I picked up a small ‘Swarovski’ container & a set of earphones (white). Let me know if they’re yours please.


Some News


·        For your Diary - Our 2012 Christmas Party / BBQ – is scheduled for Tuesday 18th December – straight after our training session – so at 7pm. It’ll be held in the BBQ courtyard at the rear of the Sports Building, overlooking the ovals. This is always a great event so PLEASE do your best to attend. But you will need to book now please.

If any of you would like to offer to help with arrangements before & on the night – please let me or Chris know. Many hand make light work ! So far offers to help have not been numerous at all – how about it ?



As usual we will be in action on Tuesday evening next, 18th December


In 2012, 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


·        After next Tuesday night we will have a 2 week break – so back in action again on Tuesday 8th January 2013 !


Saturday Morning Hill Session at Jells Park


Our  Hill session WILL go ahead again next Saturday morning (15th December) - at Jells Park, and 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.

Running Diaries

I still have a limited supply of Running Diaries for any of you who might like to keep tabs on your training/progress. Just send me a note if you’d like one.

A great number of you now have diaries – how about starting to bring them along on Tuesday evening for me to review your progress ?
