The aim of the of the session was to clock some more KMs towards the January challange and perhaps see others and give them a wave from the distance. Few of us couldn't make it, but on the other hand few others were out and about in different parts of the city.

I took my dog Floppy along and we started with a 2.5k walk to the Racecourse. The morning was windy and wet, but with time the sun showed up and made me feel good to be able to exercise during daylight hours. Following the walk we did a quick 5k run towards another GG challenge, then a latte break (yes they serve fantastic coffee from the van by the main Racecourse stand) and a 30min walk, followed by 2h long 17k run.

It was great to briefly see Michael, Vicky and Leanne.

Michael ran a round of the course as part of his 15k daily exercise. I'm hearing that he stopped for a chot chocolate from the coffee van.

Vicky came to walk with her friend and covered a distance of 5k enjoying coffee from the above mentioned pop-up coffee shop.

Leanne came down to do an 'Easy 10K', despite her leg still being achy.

Our new member Edward was there too. He ran one lap and felt really good being outside and excersising. Give him a big cheer guys!

Jenna was spotted briefly, before she headed towards Bachelor Hill for some hill reps.

Keep it going guys! We have this!
