Uncle JiM:

Nope, a lot further up the creek!

Studley Park will be your home parkrun. It's not a quick course, but is much more pleasant than the bike paths of Darebin parkrun.

I don't think I'll be getting any fast times for a while anyway.

That trail had a very long gestation - it was something like 22 years from original conception to completion, held up first by legal trench warfare waged by the golf club and school on the north side, then opposition from local residents (and their supporters on the Boorondara council) on the south side - I gave the latter a spray in a 2007 log entry, when it was still another decade from being finished.

(Necessary context for full interpretation of the end of the 2007 log entry is that Wall Street had crashed overnight, in what turned out to be the opening act of the GFC).

That was an excellent log entry and associated banter! Can confirm no houses were robbed nor daughters violated this morning.

Although 12 years of inflation has made a six-figure salary and a seven-figure house price less prominent signs of wealth now than they were then.
