I'm Back.

 Hello there Peoples. I haven't visited blog land for a few weeks, mainly because I haven't had much to say. Sometimes life just gets in the way.
The Twisted Sisters and the Chubby Hubbies are all still out training hard but we have had a few weeks break from any events here in Adelaide. This is soon to change again as we have quite a few coming up, plus we are going over to Portland in Victoria in October to compete in their Marathon Festival.
In September the Yurrebilla ultra marathon is being run in Adelaide. This is a really tough trail run so every weekend every one is out in the Adelaide Hills training hard. I  have competed in this event twice. The first time finishing well, but last year I was forced to withdraw at the 21 km. mark due to illness. And so this year I have some unfinished business to settle.

These photos are of me trail running around Mt. Noorat, an extinct volcanic crater in Victoria and were taken a couple of weeks ago.
It was freezing cold, pouring with rain and was an absolutely exhilarating run . I loved every single kilometre of this run and just wanted to keep running forever.

I love the feeling of standing close to a steep edge.

These photos were of another Trail that the Chubby Hubby and I did around the same area. This is Hopkin's Falls and were truly spectacular.


Meanwhile back in the sewing department not a lot has been happening. I'm still plodding along with the hexies and whilst I enjoy making the hexie flowers, putting the little suckers together is not as much fun.
I do have about four projects very close to being finished so will have something to show soon.

Cheers for now
Happy Running or sewing or both
