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 ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. 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.
