I work as a solicitor/ mother/ wife, you get the picture, 24 hrs a day, live in Toowong the Ďleafy western suburbsí have lived in Brisbane since I was 3 and joined the Pat Carroll running group in Dec 04.
My favorite restaurant is Sitar Indian (curry makes you hurry).
My earliest childhood memory is riding my scooter flat out down a hill into a tree.
Now that I am an adult I donít ride scooters.
My favorite movie is Kellyís Heroes because of the song Burning Bridges and all those legendary actors.
Brisbane City is sensational because itís unpretentious.
My regular holiday destination is Rainbow Bay.
If money was no option I would adopt loads of overseas orphans.
It frustrates me when people do not accept responsibility for their own actions.
I have been involved in running since 1983? and my most memorable running experience is running to the top of Mt Pomona and then being too scared to run down and having to be assisted by a one armed SES volunteer.
I enjoy distance running because I get to eat muffins without feeling guilty.
My favorite run is around Mt Cootha on a misty morning.
Motivation is something I do not lack. It must come from within.
Injuries are the PITS.
The loss of my newborn baby boy in Sep 03 was a turning point in my life because I realized that sh#* happens and thereís not a whole lot you can do about it, so you may as well get on with life and do what you want to do.
The people in the Pat Carroll running group are all to be commended for trying to better themselves.
I prefer running in clothes because I am modest (and old and wrinkly).
Running is always difficult with a hangover.
The best advice anyone gave me was donít sweat the small stuff.
I will never regret anything because itís a waste of energy.
The Noosa Journal Half Marathon and Noosa 10k is only 3 weeks away. Itís time to lock in your goal.
This is what David Waldon had to say following his experience as a pace runner at the 2005 Gold Coast Half Marathon:
Being the 2.20 half pacer, although a bit slow, was the most enjoyable half marathon I have ran. The conversation flowed throughout with various runners. It was great to hear all those stories from the real running battlers. The most memorable moment was Trish who was very emotional in my arms at the end as she had set a PB by 5 min and said she could not have done it without me.
Congratulations to everyone who took part, especially the guy in drag!
The three musketeers, Michelle/ Claire and Matt are prepared to reveal their darkest secrets and have been doing so by keeping an online diary of their running ventures.
Tomorrow morning we will have our monthly NO WATCH 1K, please remember to bring a gold coin donation for Camp Quality.
