 Tuesday Evening Running Squad at Monash Clayton

Hi All

Another very special night – after being thrilled with the attendance last week of the great Sonia O’Sullivan (Olympic Silver in Sydney 2000) - we were joined this week by Olympic Gold Medalist (3000m Steeplechase in Sydney 2000) – Reuben Kosgei (Kenya). Reuben was most impressed with our squad & the quality of your efforts on the track. He enjoyed meeting & running with you. Thanks to all of you for making Reuben feel so welcome, and thanks to Tim Crosbie for bringing Reuben along to meet us.

This last 2 weeks has set a standard of special guests that I’ll find hard to sustain !!  - but I do hope Sonia will return ?

Reuben – Gold in Sydney 2000

We enjoyed a another great workout on the grass – Mona Fartlek, one of our tougher sessions. Sadly the excitement did get to me and I lost count of the 30 sec efforts – but we all survived !.

The 15 minute warm up – and warm down was of course an integral part of the session

Thanks to all who made the effort to send their apology – I do appreciate the commitment demonstrated when you take that small trouble.  Attendance last night was a little down due to Semester break but 56 was still great.

It was great to have Priya & Nine rejoin us after an absence & the ‘guest’ appearance of Georgie was welcome

We welcomed yet another 2 ‘new recruits’ this week ; Tom Abourizir & Ashleigh Sun.

Would any of you who have joined us for the first time in recent weeks & have not returned since - please send me advice of your intentions as soon as possible.

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.

Lost & Found

Left behind by someone on Tuesday night – a grey ‘Hoodie’ size XS, brand ‘Line’ – no owner ID ..

I’ll bring it along next Tuesday evening.


We’ll be in action again as usual next Tuesday evening 27th September  2011

·         We’re still 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.

·         And we are in action every Tuesday evening without fail throughout 2011
