Park run results. Chris Wade ran his 2nd fastest time ever and good to see Mitho, Hutzy and LG getting back into some form after coming back from injuries. Happy to retake the age category record at Westerfolds Park after someone not named Hutzy rudely took it off me and ecstatic that I am not going to see that tough course for at least another 4 years no matter who smashes that time, pulled up very sore in the hip afterwards and feel like the wheels are finally starting to fall off. Hats off to those tough Westerfoldians who do it each week!

It's okay to talk.

The single biggest killer of men aged under 45 is suicide. In 2014, 4623 took their own life in Australia. That's 12 men every day, 1 man every two hours. 41% of men who contemplated suicide felt they couldn't talk about their feelings.

Only 20% of people know that suicide is the most likely cause of death for men aged under 45. Let's show men (and women, etc.) across the world that #ITSOKAYTOTALK. Take a selfie with this message and tag friends to get the message out!

Too many lives lost, particularly in the south west region, already these past few years.

Thank you for the nomination Luke Soulos

I'll nominate some of the #SundayRunday crew Anna Spanna and Lee Dorrow. Also from the Melbourne Midday Milers Luke Goodman Simon Bevege David Hartley and finally Scott Stacey.

Spread the word everyone.

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.
