DIv 4 and Div 7 attempt to locate their drop off position and prepation for their run back to FennerPfft, people get hurt every week playing League and no one complains. Only one runner has gone to hospital from Inward Bound in the last four years (extreme dehydration led to kidney failure).
Div4 and Div 7 debrief after their mock dropoff. Fenner's Div one team prepares for their 20km training now all teams have returned safe and sound at 11:30pm
All is not lost. I have managed to locate some events of similar terrain and distance to keep me busy in the interim. The North Face 100 is held in the Blue Mountains, the Trailwalker will find a spot in my calendaer as usual, and I also managed to find the Gold Coast 100 - the Australian Nationals.
With IB postponed I finally get to relax my self imposed no drinking policy. A brew and a few mates is all the solace I need. Careful though, training for the North Face starts next week.
A much shorter event - Road Relay - that consists of 1500m and 3000m legs has also been moved forward to term 2. Can our IB team turn ultra distance running to sprint? Only time will tell...
