Ran in ANSW road relays in Wollongong on the weekend i was second runner in the B team and had a pleasing personal best of 16:36 for the 4km average 4:09 pace and then dashed off to go to Melbourne.Hoping to get some runs in down there.
People can't understand why a man runs. They don't see any sport in it. Argue it lacks the sight and thrill of body contact. Yet, the conflict is there, more raw and challenging than any man versus man competition. For in running it is man against himself, the cruelest of opponents. The other runners are not the real enemies. His adversary lies within him, in his ability, with brain and heart to master himself and his emotions.
