I am covering my entry fees etc ok only one dnf so far the Warrnambool no chance of 150 now too many rain cancelled races sitting on close to 130 races will now aim for 20,000 kms an easier target only 1200 to go.
I am retyring on 144 races not out! that is it for the season thank you for your support no idea if I want to race again.
I managed to sneak in another race to finish on 145 races did the maths and got top 3 placings apx 45 times a few fastest times and I reckon about 10% of races were cancelled due to bad weather.
2011 I may aim to run a marathon each week.Oh THAT has been done allready ooops. Maybe will aim to not sit on as much.
