Mona and me

One of these guys took over five hours to run a marathon. The other one didn’t…

For those who don’t know, the skinny one is former Australian marathon champion Steve Moneghetti.

I was lucky enough to hear Steve speak at a conference last week. He spoke brilliantly without notes for 45 minutes; not an ‘umm’ or ‘aah’ or ‘y’know’ to be heard. And his speech had been tailored specially for our group, so it’s not as if he just memorised a generic speech. Amazing bloke.

BTW, he let slip that in his prime years he trained about 8,500 km in a year. Wakes and I covered around 900km in training for our Marathon. No wonder it took us so long.

    I am a bit embarrassed to admit there appears to be a little arse-grabbing going on in my photo. And not for the first time, if I’m not mistaken.

    Just thought I’d get in first.

    Also, is it just me, or is Mona’s pose a little bit ‘Carson’?

    Am I seeing things or does Mona’s pose carry a woodie?
