  • Pat,

    We could certainly be achieving a great deal less! Don't undervalue the fact you're motivated to maintain a healthy lifestyle whilst socialising with friends who share in the same. Our desire to step into unchartered waters with challenging running goals echo's our craving to live life to the full.

    I must say that I'm continually in awe as to the amount of dedication I witness at PCRG sessions and also on the days I run the river loop. PCRG members have been out in force wherever you go. Your Gold Coast event is when all of your preparation comes to fruition. You'll achieve something special because you'll be in a zone that is reserved solely for race day. It's going to be superb!

    There'll be a PCRG tent in the team's area. Here's a map indicating tent location. Please feel free to use this tent as your base on Saturday (10k runners) & Sunday. Gear will be stored at your own risk. There'll be a barbeque on Sunday which is complimentary (my shout). Please feel free to fire up the barbeque whenever you so wish as I may be away cheering etc.

    I'm proposing to group members that we run in memory of Damien Leeding. I'm proposing this gesture given Damien's community service as well as the fact he was an active runner based on the Gold Coast. I've attached a police remembrance ribbon to your race number which I'm inviting you to wear.

    Your race number can be collected at PCRG this week as well as at the PatCarrollOnline.com booth at Gold Coast Expo (June 1/2) from 12pm Friday to 3pm Saturday. Also at PCRG Tent Sunday July 3/pre race, in a box located on top of bench.

    Thursday nights Motivational evening with Steve Moneghetti is SOLD OUT. There is however a 2nd option. This being an option to join us at 7.30 for the Charity Auction and Steve's talk. Cost being $30 payable on the night to the Kim Walters Choices program. Please contact me if you wish to take up this offer. I'll publish an Auction Items inventory in Wednesday's newsletter and phone bids will be welcome.

    This weeks PCRG sessions will be full of pre Gold Coast banter and an opportunity to bank 2 more pre race sharpeners. Tomorrow's session will take place in the Gardens and I can assure you that I'll space runners so that you receive a clear run throughout. Now is not the time to pick up an injury.

    Catch you in the am - it'll be a blast & GO PCRG!



    P.S. We're only $3700 shy of achieving our online fund rasing target. You can sign up or sponsor here. If you sign up you'll be entering ACHIEVE as password on "2nd" page.

    PCRG Silver Sponsor: Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar

    Pizza shouldn't leave you feeling greasy and ashamed. It should be a delicious way to eat when life's too busy or you simply just fancy your favourite. It used to be that you had to choose between a quality pizza or home delivery. Not any more.

    Hilly Socks - second to none!

    I met Ron Hill pre 1986 London Marathon - Ron is a true legend! This meeting encouraged me to try "Hilly Socks" some 25 years later. I'm particularly impressed with the Mono Skins and can honestly say they're the best fitting sock I've ever worn.
