22-Sep-2008 Rapture

Monday 22 September 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

I got up “not early” on Saturday and did stuff around the house, can’t remember what. oh yes posted some loco shoes (walk along the beach). it was a hot day and lots of people on MY beach.

Went for a kayak with the missus to bonnie vale – it was great to get out, but after we went past Gunnamatta headland the wind was blowing quite hard, so we headed to the beach. picked up litter whilst we were kayaking – most from the boats at bonnie vale for sure. wankers. got back to hordern’s in quite big waves, dawn lost her nerve and bailed before the waves broke so I swam out and paddled it in.

Later in the afternoon I ran (started approx 4.20pm as was fiddling around with ipod – first time used in approx a month), it was still hot, humid and no breeze. I wanted to run to wattamolla and back. As I was going up a hill you get this view to marley and across to wattamolla – got there just as rapture by blondie (a remixed version) was playing (hence the title for this post) – I was on quite a high.

At wattamolla I went for a quick dip – brrrr. the sun was going down. I also drank for the tap that says quite emphatically “do not drink from this tap – water unsafe” or words to that effect. I got back to marley as the sun went down – very beautiful indeed. I ran well and got into a good zone – even running in the dark, no torch. I got home approx 7.30pm – had been dark for about an hour. I was very thirsty/dry – didn’t take a drink. I went for a quick dip on hordern’s beach. like ran in, went underwater and ran out.

Sunday I got up lateish and sorted some shoes out as we are selling Loco shoes thru John Hill’s shop at Bondi Beach. I was dropping off his stock at 2pm. After that I went to Newtown to look at Futon frames and bought some chai and veggie sausages from a health food store as the kids wanted a bbq tonight.

Read the posts on coolrunning about the sydney marathon/half. it would have been good to run but couldn’t be arsed.
