Alan is in training AGAIN for the Melbourne Marathon in October. Every year he says its the last time then 6 months pass and something gives him renewed determination to take on the 42km again. It’s a constant mind battle to ‘beat his time’. Anyway, on July 18th he ran the 10k in Run Melbourne in 44:10. The race started at 9a.m. so it was an early (and very cold) start to get all the kids ready to drive into the city, find a parking spot and get to the start line on time.
