We visited Mission Beach, a town south of Cairns, on one day and planned to include a short 8km run through Djiru National Park along the Musgravea Trail in our activities. The area was known for its cassowary population, and Sharon was a little nervous about the possibility of an encounter. I, on the other hand, thought it unlikely and played down the risks should we be lucky enough to see one.

I ran an easy 5km round Copa this morning, moving a little better, but with my bad right knee quite sore all the way.
