Saturday 31 August Cecilia-Rooikat Ravine-Kirstenbosch
3rd Anniversary run
|Looking back over Constantia Nek|
I was heartened to find that several others shared my optimism about the break in the weather this morning because 14 turned up including Sandy Ackland my fellow founder of Table Mountain Trailers who has not been running for over a year and Neil Garbers a regular who has been off running for several weeks with a severe chest infection. Welcome back both of you.
And a welcome to Leif Westvig a newbie.

Gregg and Gae led the Main group and four others came with me in the Recovery group. Unfortunately Fay had a walking group reduced to herself only. Think the photos tell the story best

Congratulations to Neil Garbers who completed his 50th sortie this morning
Thought for the day
In this world we have trail runners who are stouthearted and take a chance that the weather will be OK and they are most often rewarded with a glorious, invigorating and inspiring run in the mountains. Then we have the more fainthearted who at the sound of an early morning raindrop stay in bed.
