What a wonderful place to run. So many beautiful things to look at and not concentrate on my running. Being a horticulturist by trade I was in seventh heaven. I even found myself giving a botany lesson to a guy who asked if I was ok after I let out a whoop at a very special tree 😃😃. What a Wally. I thoroughly enjoyed this run and according to Garmin finished at 48 mins and 20 secs. Two minutes faster than ever before. I will wait to get the chip time though for accuracy. Now what can I run next. X x x

Blimey - super fast! Well done. Sounds lovely. I have to ask, what was special about the tree?

It was a Woolemi pine. Up until a few years ago thought to be extinct. It is a very beautiful tree.

Oooh I was thinking of you tonight Andy! That's a fabulous time! Brilliant. And yes it's a gorgeous place to run. I'm so jealous because that bling is nicer than the one I got last year!

I'd be hallucinating - heat stroke, probably see myself surrounded by blurry Tom Hiddlestons shaking martinis

It really was lovely. I hope to do it again next year too. I'm still chuffed and can't really believe what I did. 😃
