This time last year, I could barely run two kilometres. I didn’t believe that I was terribly unfit, but I knew I wasn’t at my peak. It was a bit of an eye-opener when I eventually took the plunge and decided to take up running again. The journey has had plenty of ups and downs.

We have been enjoying a few sunny days here in Sydney. While there is still the definite chill of winter in the air, it has been nice enough to get outside and enjoy the parks. We weren’t the only ones out and about having fun – these Corellas seemed to be having a great time

Last week I posted my photos from pre-dawn Cronulla. I took the photos with my smartphone after my run. In that post I moaned about not throwing my DSLR into the back of  the car, so that I could have captured some better shots. This week I actually remembered to pack the camera! I’m pleased
