Today was scheduled as an easy run for 75 minutes. It drifted out to 77 mins to round up to 15km.
In 2011 the team first ran in the Perth City to Surf, and every year since we have run and raised awareness and some money for Ovarian Cancer Australia.

From Mario Fraioli’s Morning Shakeout newsletter
I know a lot of running coaches read this newsletter each week. Every one of you should watch this video clip, despite the fact it has no direct tie-in with running. Listen to Sam Houston State baseball coach Matt Deggs talk about his team was eliminated from the College World Series Super Regionals over the weekend. Listen to his players talk about him. The full 16-minute press conference is worth watching and chock full of valuable lessons any coach can apply to his or her practice. “For years I was a transactional coach: what can I get? What can I get?” Deggs says starting at the 13:30 mark of the video. “I’m a transformational coach now. It’s not about wins or losses. It’s about love, it’s about building men, building relationships that will last forever…there’s no greater honor than to sacrifice for a brother. And that encapsulates and embodies this team to a T.”
