- When I first moved to Canberra about 10 years ago I used to sometimes
go to a cafe high up on Observatory Hill and admire the scenery of
beautiful green rolling hills. This morning I realised that I was
actually running through those very hills.
It was such a joy to be out there. It was a cold morning - great for
running, and I had my "camel pack" on, so I didn't have to confine
myself to a route punctuated by taps. It is Sunday today and it was
great to feel free to run for as long as I wanted.
The sun was bright, there was a nice breeze, and I was accompanied at
different stages by sheep, cows, parrots, cockatoos, kookaburras,
rabbits and kangaroos.
