|This morning's run passed by the famous Melbourne|
For this morning's run, I travelled into the East Melbourne apartment of an old friend, Bill, and we ran about 8km down to, and around, the Tan Track and back. Bill is a formidable performer in any field of endeavour he chooses. I first met him at University where we were both doing our Masters degrees, and he was way ahead of the class. He is also an accomplished musician, has reached the pinnacle of his chosen academic profession, and is a quality cyclist and runner.

Luck wasn't on his side in running and cycling, with crippling injuries shortening his competitive career, but he was hard to beat, especially over distances from 10km to 25km. Nowadays, he's content to run for an hour most days, chronic injuries permitting, and doesn't run competitively, reasoning that this will extend his running life. He has advised me to do the same, and I can see the wisdom of this approach. Maybe that is what I will end up doing.
