1 hr - Ran the River route again, but this time took new field support rep and room mate Andrew Collins. We took a path trying to retrace the way I came home the other day. We ran about 9 min miles was my guess. Andrew has done some adventure style races and mud runs, … Continue reading The river revisted
1 hr 15 min - This morning I left the hotel to run as it was still dark. Not knowing which way to go, I figured that the path surrounding the stadium oval I could see from my room was a good place to try for. It was under construction, with an older soccer pitch … Continue reading Adelaide solo run
