Park Run results. Had fun at Altona Beach taking on two 16 year olds who I reckon looked at me and thought they had this old bloke covered so they put in lots of surges into a gale whilst I just ran a steady pace. After the turnaround, took the lead and ran as hard as I could with the wind and just got pipped in the last 100 metres by one of them, who was stilling wearing his hoodie! Enjoyable race as they were rapt to get PBs by 20 and 40 seconds and I beat the age record by over a minute. They can now look forward to heaps more PBs whereas all I can hope for is to keep the decline down to a minimum! :) Recommend the run, out and back course on bike paths and with the bonus of a warm down along the beach, even a dip in the water if it's warmer.

Altona Beach:

2 Michael BIALCZAK 18:09 VM55-59 Age Grade % 85.40 %, age category record, 2nd highest Age Grade % Altona

Main Beach, Qld:

Not running related but helping out a friend with her PhD research and because the study sits pretty much in our age demographic, I thought there may be some interest.

Memory Study at Monash University

Investigating: Different types of memory across the lifespan, including spatial memory and autobiographical memory
Looking for: Men & Women aged between 35 and 60
Study involves: 3.5 hours of testing at Monash Biomedical Imaging in Clayton. Testing must take place 9-5 Monday-Friday.

Testing includes paper/pencil tasks designed to look at different aspects of memory, computerised tasks, and some surveys related to memory and health information.

The study also involves an MRI of your brain, which will involve being in the scanner for 1 hour, which involves approximately 30 minutes of being still and 30 minutes of completing tasks.

To be eligible you must be:
Free of any neurological conditions
Fluent in English

For more information contact Anna at or via phone at 0403703713

Anna is the girlfriend of Alex, the young guy from the U.S. that did a few sessions with us last month.

There seems to be a bit of interest in the Tokyo Marathon for 2017 so I thought I would put up a post. The race is on 26 February 2017 and it would be awesome to get another Miler contingent over there. Entries via the lottery open on August 1 and close on August 31. If you have run a sub 2:55 marathon (sub 3:40 for women) in 2015 or 2016 on a certified course then you can apply now through a separate entry (Run as One). You can find more details on the marathon website. Get on board!!! ... See MoreSee Less

The Melbourne Midday Milers

The Midday Milers offer city workers an informal but structured lunch-time training program. The group meets at 12:30pm each weekday at the Tan Track, only a five-minute jog from the Flinders St / Swanston St intersection. All levels of runners are welcome to join us for a variety of casual, easy runs on Monday, Wednesday and Friday or more intense, speed / fartlek / hill sessions on Tuesday and Thursday. To ensure we cater for all standards of runners,  the Tuesday and Thursday sessions have dedicated A and B groups. To see how this works, refer to our fortnightly Training Program.

The famous Tan Track is one of Melbourne’s most picturesque running venues. We start most runs from the “Pillars of Wisdom” – on the Tan Track just south of the Swan St Bridge.
