    The Gold Coast Airport Marathon will be sponsoring our group breakfast tomorrow morning - FOC pancakes at The Ship Inn. Thank you Gold Coast Airport Marathon, your support is greatly appreciated. Tomorrow mornings session will consist of a 50min light run and conclude with our No Watch 1K. Please remember to bring a donation. All proceeds will go to Dig Deep for Elaine. Donations of $5 or more are entitled to a receipt.

    If you would like to attend Dinner with Deek and have not purchased your tickets can you please do so ASAP or at the very least ask me via return email to put a ticket aside for you. There are only 30 seats left and I am sure I won’t have any trouble selling tickets (only $35) to a dinner featuring Rob De Castella to the hundreds of runners passing through race registration this weekend.

    Susan (my Susan) is leaving me. Well for only two weeks that is. Susan is traveling O/S to compete in a triathlon. Susan requires a bike bag to aid with her travels and was hoping to borrow one. Do you have a bike bag you can lend Susan?

    Accommodation Gold Coast w/end (Sat/Sun): Jodie no longer requires the accommodation at Breakfree Neptune resort that she has paid for. Please contact me or contact Jodie for more details.

    For the first time in months I don’t have a group profile to share with you. If you would like to reveal more about yourself please contact me.

    If you paid me your Gold Coast entry please advise if you do not wish me to collect your race kit. All race kits will be collected by me this Sunday and will be available for collection at training next week as well as at Dinner with Deek.

    Tuesdays 3k Time Trial was a huge buzz for me. Thank you to everyone who attended. I can’t wait to see the video. 3k Time Trial report/photos/results can be found here.

    Catch you ALL in the morning.

    Gold Coast 2006 - GOALS

    I will post your Gold Coast 2006 Goal on my site as well as on a board which will be displayed at the group sessions.

    I encourage you to accept the challenge.

    Please get out your diaries, your PATHWAY to success will involve these important dates.

    Dig Deep for Elaine & Qld Cancer Fund

    I am asking you all to please “Dig Deep” not only in your running but also in your generosity towards raising funds for the QUEENSLAND CANCER FUND.

    I approached Susan one morning to let her know that her Uncut story moved me. I realised then we had a connection to cancer. I mentioned briefly my story to her & I would like to share it all with you.
