Church Point Challenge STaR 12ks

As the 7am host of this morning's Striders Run I get to run a very short course at a very slow pace. Arrived at North Narra carpark, the home break of World Champion Surfer Damien Hardman as the sun was rising over the ocean. Ahh.

Ran with about a dozen Striders and a soon to be new Strider from South Africa. Must have been convinced by my story of the first President of Striders being South African. And I did mention the Comrades King Bruce Fordyce is speaking at the Striders dinner but only if you are a member.

The run went from North Narrabeen up around a few headlands past Turimetta and Warriewood beaches before arriving at Mona Vale and heading inland. Then we ran through Warriewood and came back to the start again. Very leisurely pace as well. 1:10.13 for 12ks. Glad I'm taper for SMH Half next week.

And Tesso the foot does still hurt badly. So I could be joining the keystone cops running 2 hrs.

Were you chatting in your best Seef Eeefrican accent? Is Colin interviewing Bruce at the dinner?

When I saw 12k STaR I thought 'now that's my kind of run'. Hope you get through the half OK. You could always run at the pointy end with LLs :)

About time you got to experience life at the BOP ;-P

Sorry to hear about the foot ... especially the 'badly' description :(

But it sure would be fun to have you help drive the 2hr bus :)

Flakey - why are running SMH if the foot is still sore? Aren't you asking for trouble?
