First time in 5 years. The course has changed a little, now 8km and no beach section. I haven't been doing a lot of training for the last year or two while the new house build was underway and I only decided to enter just before Xmas. So with only about 6 training runs completed in the previous two weeks I was only expecting a time of about 1 hour. I was pleased to finish in under 52 minutes!

Went out looking for a new ice box/cooler and found they had brought back the retro Esky I remember from back in the 60's!

The blue ones are apparently exclusive to Bunnings and there is a smaller yellow version with a carry bar exclusive to Big W.
I needed something larger and easier to carry so I ended up getting the Esky Ice King 65L which has all-terrain wheels, and doubles as a seat (for two if you're skinny, maybe only one if you've over indulged over Xmas!).

It's been a while since I went in an organised event. One of the guys from work suggested going in the Run Melbourne 5Km on 18 Jul 2010. I wasn't sure how I would go and the day before I had a severe cramp in my right calf so I decided to loosen up on the day with a 35Km ride before heading into town for the run. I was happy with my time of 26:28 although it's a little slower than I would have liked.
Division Place: 53
Gender Place: 288
Overall Place: 380

I signed up for the 100K classic which started in Sorrento at 8:00am on Saturday 15 October 2006 and finishes in Melbourne's Docklands. However, I customised the route and rode down to the start and then back. All up the distance was 180k and I completed it in 5 hours and 30 minutes. It was my first major outing on my new Trek 5.5 Madone and it rode like a dream.
