Just in case you ever ever do a parkrun in Sydney - check out MessEngineer's AP for today. He doesn't know it but I'm sure part of it was written expressly for you.
I'm trying to decide whether to do Brimbank parkrun next week in Vic. I get to the airport at some ridiculous time of the morning (5:15am I think) and have to wait almost five hours to pick up Craig from the same airport before we head off to Creswick for the reride of the MDC. Brimbank looks overtly complicated so I have no expectation of smashing myself right before the MTBO event but I just never know with me (I did smash myself at the Christchurch parkrun right before the Dunedin sprint event and then regretted it).
