It shows me "racing" the young girl in the 3000 metres that I wrote about in my last post. I'm making one of my many fruitless attempts to overtake. On the infield is another of my training partners, Kathy. Well, when talking about Kathy, the term "training partner" is not totally accurate. I'm barely quick enough to keep up with her on warm-up runs. She holds the Australian Record in the 3000 metres for females aged 50-54, with 10:42.87.
My analytical eye has spotted one obvious weakness in my running technique — my stride, after months of distance running, is very short and weak. I'm open to caption suggestions for this photo. One friend has already offered "The whole crowd is on their feet"! The winning suggestion will receive the following exclusive prizes: 1. The honour of having your caption used for the photo with a link to your blog; 2. A virtual six-pack of Steve's award-winning Nenmatsu Tripel beer!
