|Pat Carroll 'Brisbane' running group newsletter|
Congratulations to everyone who ran in the 3k Time Trial on Tuesday. There were a few absentees with valid reasons such as injuries and no doubt Scotty Budd was busy taking USM to task over a drafting issue from Sundays Coomera Tri. Commiserations to you Scott however I have since heard that you were seen drafting an elderly lady while walking through the Queen St Mall. Fair go mate!
You will find a link below to a brief report on Tuesdays 3k Time Trial which also contains a link to a few photos taken courtesy Susan.
Please remember to bring a Gold Coin tomorrow morning for our monthly NO WATCH 1k and I hope you enjoy getting to know Sarah Clarkson just that little bit more.
Catch you ALL in the morning.
P.S All the best to Dan, Sue, Kate and David who are running in Melbourne this weekend.
Please RSVP by return email if you will be able to attend Michael's farewell breakfast which will take place @ The Ship Inn immediately following the group session tomorrow morning.
I work as a lawyer. I live in Ascot, have lived in Brisbane since I was 3 and joined the Pat Carroll running group in May 2005
My favourite restaurant is AJ's Noodles in the City or Monsoon in Central Brunswick .
My earliest childhood memory is visiting my grandfather as a little girl just before he died. Mum had dressed me up in a cute little yellow dress with pigtails in my hair. We were going out somewhere and I remember asking him how I looked.
Any adult can bring back the freedom of youth when out running.
My favourite movie is Life is Beautiful because life is beautiful.
Brisbane City is a great place to live because the weather is beautiful one day and perfect the next.
My regular holiday destination is Melbourne to visit my fiance's family.
If money was no option I would travel the world and buy lots of expensive Italian shoes!
It frustrates me when people wander around aimlessly not aware of their surroundings.
I have been involved in running since the beginning of 2005, although I did do cross country running at high school and my most memorable running experience is running at the Gold Coast this year.
I enjoy distance running because it sure beats underwater hockey.
My favourite run is anywhere along the river.
Motivation is something that will never show up in a drug test.
Injuries are horrible.
There have been lots of turning points in my life because life is constantly changing and evolving.
The Pat Carroll running group are a fantastic, friendly, encouraging, motivating and all round great bunch of people.
I prefer running in Spring/Autumn because it's not too hot.
Running is sometimes difficult but the way you feel when you finish makes it all worth while.
The best advice the guy from that pizza ad gave me was 'work hard and be good to your mother'
Nothing inspires memore than a chance to beat my PB. I will never regret.
"Our Group'' is void of superstars, everyone respects each other regardless of the pace they may run.
It is my aim to spread the same philosophy throughout the running community.
The Brisbane Running Group 3K Challenge, on October 21, will reveal the strongest group overall and each runner will play an equal role in determining the outcome.
If you are available please register your name at training on the reverse of the A frame poster.
Camp Quality have provided me with some fantastic ''Camp Quality'' T Shirts to distribute to the group for free.
If you are prepared to donate $10 to Camp Quality (tax deductible receipt provided) you will be eligible for a free Camp Quality T Shirt.
The shirts are made by Bonds and are 100% cotton.
