Update - Wednesday 2 August 2011

posted 3 Aug 2011, 03:32 by Monash Running

Hey – what a great night last night – 20 deg during the day, a pretty mild night, and more daylight , & Deb ran barefoot – so there !

Is this the start of a weather change ? The oval/grass was even pretty dry!

And the numbers were up on last week – we hit the big 70 ! – including another 10 new squad members. And we  welcomed the return of a few who hadn’t been sighted for a while – Alex R, Emma K, Patrick T.

Our 10 ‘new recruits’ were ; Belinda Nichol, Janna Olofsson, Carl-Magnus Everitt, Kristy Manrow, Horace Josh, Elaine Xu, Nancy Wang, Kadence Bodard (back after an absence),Veena Kelleppan & Kayla Saggers - a warm welcome to each & every one of you. If any spelling errors here – please let me know – some people’s writing is more legible than others !

And thanks again to the large number of you who were unable to attend last night, but thought to send me an apology.

Those of you  who have joined us for the first time in recent weeks & have not returned since are asked to send me advice of your intentions, otherwise I’ll have to remove you from our mailing list.

I have a limited supply of running diaries for any of you who might like to keep tabs on your training/progress. Just send me a note if you’d like one.


We’ll be in action again as usual next Tuesday evening, 9th August  2011

·         We’re still located at the Baseball field, & using the pavilion over there. Access by car is quite good & parking is very handy - enter from Ring Road East & go around to the Baseball field along the road  around the back (Wellington Rd end) of Oval 1.

·         And we are in action every Tuesday evening without fail throughout 2011

Saturday Mornings in July -  Hill Session at Jells Park

Sorry, but our  Hill session from Jells Park won’t be  going ahead next  Saturday morning (6th August) as most  of us will be involved in the Road Relays at Sandown Racecourse on that Saturday afternoon.

So we will back in action on Saturday 13th August & as usual we’ll meet at  8.30am SHARP, out the front of the cafe – ‘Madeline’s’. Enter Jells Park from the entrance in Waverley Rd extension – opposite the Glen Waverley Golf Course.

Hope for a big turnout on 13th. Contact me if any questions/problems.

We had a great session on the hills last Saturday morning  – but nice weather certainly helped – well done to all who attended.



Chris Allan, Dan Jitnah, Carlo Chiodo Clement Chadenet,  & Evan Henley, as well as a large number of our squad members who are Glenhuntly club members,  are having a run in the upcoming Road Relays at Sandown Racecourse  (Sat 6 August). I’ll Put their results on our website as soon after the event as possible.

My mate – and great support of a Tuesday evening, Len Johnson, is off on Friday this week for about 5 weeks to attend firstly the World Uni Games in China then the World Athletic Championships in Daegu, South Korea, wearing his sports journalist hat. I hope I might get an occasional report from Len – and if I do I’ll post to our website as well
