Thanks BondiBand!

For making tomorrows run possible! You guys rock. I never run without my B0ndiBands anymore. The best thing I can say about them is: Once I put it on, I forget about it.

It doesn’t shift, pull, pinch or itch. What it DOES do, is keep the sweat out of my eyes, and my ears warm when necessary. I have at least 5 in my running bag at all times, as the slogans and designs fit whatever mood I am in for the day, and I can never decide prior to race morning. For what it is worth, my BondiBands are the item in my running kit that I worry about the least!

I always worry that the Chinese Letters mean “I Love Goats a lot” or something like that. How would I know?DSCF2637

The boy digs’em too! When he puts his on, it’s game on for sure!


AND, I thought this would be cool. The red line is a rough approximation of the race route! This photo shows about 9 of the 10.55k out and back route. Kinda gives you a better Idea of our terrain and scenery for this race! I took this shot this afternoon after picking up my race pack. Here is the top down view from the race page.


These images from Google Street View are a good typical cross section of the city pathways we will be running on.


There are a couple sections like this, where there is some construction gravel… but for the most part it is smooth-ish asphalt. The first and last 5k are part of the Gorilla Run that isn’t in the Zoo.
