Nerang State Forest run.
Here is a great parody of a typical conversation between a runner and a non-runner:
Next Sunday we will be having a beach run. The beach runs are run along the scenic paths and roads around Burleigh and surrounding suburbs. Each beach run is different. Sometimes they include hills, sometimes the runs are all flat. Each beach run caters for varying abilities, so whether you’re a beginner or advanced runner there will be someone to run with.
Over the next few weeks Scott, from Ferry Rd Physio, will begin the morning at 6am with a short pilates/stretching session.
If you would like to join Scott meet at 6am, or come along at 6:15am to be ready for a run at 6:30am.
Last Sunday we held the inaugural Sawtell Gift 1 mile race, sponsored by Grant Sawtell. It was held along the beachfront at Burleigh and the results can be found on the website under the ‘Results’ tab. Special thanks to Grant for the prizes which were won by Steve and Judy as the first male and female across the finish line. Amanda and Captain were the winners of the spot prizes.

Good luck to the many runners heading down to Victoria for the Great Ocean Road Marathon this weekend. We will be thinking of you running in the cold whilst we are running in the beautiful Queensland sun!
This Saturday we are meeting at Binnaburra kiosk at 7am for either a walk or a run. The run is approx 19km and the walks vary from 2km – 10km. There will be something for everyone so bring your family and friends for a great Easter Saturday. Please be aware that occasionally there are leeches. An application of dry soap on bare legs, ankles will keep them at bay.
Bring your own water and food for breakfast after or you can purchase food from the kiosk. A change of clothes is also advisable. The walk / run is an out and back loop so you can leave your food and clothes in your car until after the run.

Don’t forget to rehydrate with water or a sports drink after your run. You should drink 1000ml to 1500ml of water for every kg lost. If your urine is dark yellow after your run, you need to keep rehydrating. It should be a light lemonade colour.
