Build a bigger trophy cabinet


The legs really didn't want to run this morning after last nights track race and standing at the U2 concert. So it was off to hot Campbelltown for the Fishers Ghost 10k Fun Run.
Very humid and a bit windy. My watch said 26 degrees at the start of 8:30 am. Some killer hills in the first lap of the 2 lap course. Funny I had to run the rotten things twice. Went through 5k in 20:40 and managed to finish in 42:12. Nothing to write home about, but I wasn't expecting much from the legs.
Met CR's Mango and Never Gives Up for the first time. Plus Lucky Legs again, who won her age group.

The best part of the day was snaring 3rd place in the 40-49 age group. Yeehah. First fun run trophy. Sarge beat me by about a minute to get 2nd.
Very hot down at Campbelltown, terrible flies. But great organisation and prizes.

That would be me with Lucky Legs, with our trophys in the photo.

Great photo! Congrats on the place. How you backed up after U2 is beyond me. Or maybe my inability to back up was due to the 5 hours of drinking prior to the concert...

Lend me the 42:12 and I'll write home about it ;)

Now, if you're after trophies, there used to be this quiet little fun run in Yerong Creek that nobody knew about...
