Tales of Tasmanian Adventures in Olive Oil

Sydney Bridge Run 2014


Today I took part in the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival. I did the bridge run last year, and thankfully had only signed up for the same this year! (It’s 9km.) Last year I was all enthused about how I was going to do a half marathon next – must have been those post run endorphins… At least I managed to run the whole way today, which given my dismal training this year was miraculous. I’ve heard farmers don’t need to do extra exercise, but I’m only a part time farmer and that clearly doesn’t apply!

PS. As part of participating in Blogging101 I’ve added a tagline to my site this week, to indicate what my blog is about. Now I feel as if I’ve misled you, as this post is clearly of questionable relevance to the subject of producing Tasmanian olive oil, although I did pour quite a lot of the stuff over my carb-loading pasta dish on Saturday night. Maybe that’s how I managed to finish! FFx

I'm a British doctor who married an Aussie, moved to Tasmania, and bought an olive grove. Now making extra virgin olive oil and olive leaf tea. I'd love you to join my adventures in the beautiful setting of Southern Tasmania.

  1. You ran past where I live, you know, Fi: think back to having run the wrong way down Pyrmont Street to the intersection with Pyrmont Bridge Road, where the barriers forced you to do a hairpin turn and run back towards the CBD ….
    As you made that hairpin turn, you were looking at my flatblock ! đŸ™‚


    • No way! That’s so funny! I was thinking about the locals as I was going round actually. Is it fun to have all that going on, or just noisy?! I felt kind of sorry for people just trying to go about their business in the botanic gardens – they couldn’t cross the road without getting mown down by us runners!


  2. I don’t run, but admire those with the stamina to do so. Every year I stand on the sidelines and cheer the runners in the NYC marathon, It’s amazing, Good for you!


  3. Geez, we share another interest. My husband and I also run, to the extend that I’m keeping a separate blog on our running (and hiking) endeavours. đŸ™‚


I'd love to know what you think! Tell me here :-)
