Just got back from Queensland – covered just over 600km in a tad over 1 day (in a car!) and half of that in teeming rain. I never saw one runner in all my travels although I was hardly in the right territory or time of day to capture this rare breed it seems.

Day 22 for me without a run , but I feel fine; my thigh is still numb but I can exert a lot of pressure on it without any pain – so I’m good for Sunday.

I like many of you (and as JRuns has eluded to) have received a “pre order” purchase of photo’s for the Melbourne Marathon- $59 for a set of prints that you can get from Harvey Norman for less than $2 is a bit rich. I wouldn’t even mind paying a bit extra for charity, but this is blatant commercialism/opportunism, especially as they want you to pay up front for prints you’ve never seen.

Last “Run Melbourne” prints that were sent to me included 2 that did not have me in the picture!

    I don’t think I have ever actually bought one of those pictures.
