Canberra Half Marathon weekend

Hi yah all,
This weekend we whisked ourselves away to the capital Canberra to do the half marathon there.
We drove there in the new toy (first time out of the city) driving via Wollongong to Pick up Sanna. Just about managed to cram in a weekends worth of clothes, our running gear and the roof of the little Lotus into the back.
Here’s a photo taken just after a spirited drive through the Royal National Park. I left at 7am so to get the cool crisp winter air on my morning run, the roads were deserted apart from a few bikers who enjoyed keeping up to my rear as I winded though the twisty national park roads.
I took this photo and it was lovely and quiet, all you could hear was he tinging of the engine cooling down and the waves down below against the cliffs.
Mum you will remember it here as this is where we got out for a short walk to the top of the cliff and dad was too scared to get out the car in fear of snakes 🙂
Have to say, rubbish on the left, that’s not normal Australia, it’s a very clean place usually.
A Nice shot of the rump of the Loti 🙂
Canberra, the capital of Australia and probably the most un-interesting place ever after you’ve visited it once.
The biggest dead kangaroo I’ve ever seen! It was as big as a person! it must of really damaged the car or whatever hit it!
Driving a sports car with the roof off REALLY messes up one’s hair 🙂
One of my favourite views of the car, the rear rump around the back of the window, this is the view from the rear mirrors all the time and I love it 🙂
No there are no photos of me a Sanna doing the Canberra half marathon, we would look far too tired and ugly for photo proof. We did a really good time though, approx 1:45 which is beats my previous personal best I set in the South England New Forest marathon of 1:56 by memory.
