What great conditions we enjoyed last night ! We even had a barefoot runner in the squad – frostbitten – but otherwise Ok !

Using the grass surface at the baseball oval we enjoyed a terrific session of 8 x 60 sec efforts (60 sec jog recovery after each) and we maintained the incredibly high attendance numbers with 62 brave runners pounding the turf

We were pleased to ‘sign’ another 3 new member to our squad this week –Allina Fawcett, Kylie Vongsanga & James Ingram. A very warm welcome to each of you -  I trust you’ll all become regular members of our great squad . And our visitor – Jen Ring from the Emer Casey Run committee - enjoyed her session with all of you. Thanks for making our visitors feel so welcome.

Laurence made a special ‘guest appearance – and I was pleased to see James back with us after a break.

The giveaways last night were popular to say the least. Leftovers from the Great Ocean Marathon weekend, we had a box of around 100 fantastic mandarins – that went like hot cakes. Also we had a large quantity of GOR show bags that also were gone in no time. Can’t promise giveaways on a regular basis – but you never know what to expect !

I have just a limited supply of running diaries – let me know if you’d like one. But there is an obligation to have more than one entry a week in the diary if you take one !

·         Remember that warm gear is worthwhile on the colder nights – gloves etc – see my note below about running gloves availability

* Please continue to always be careful with your valuables.  We try to keep a good watch on the change room – and we lock it if we are away (e.g. at the hill circuit), but it’s much safer if you can leave valuables/cash etc locked somewhere else secure. If no alternative – give valuables to me for personal safekeeping during the session.
