  1. It would be nice, but how do we pay for that? Especially when there are way more degrees than ever before for jobs that didn't have degrees previously.
  2. I did it a couple of years ago through Kokoda Adventures under Charlie Lynn: https://www.kokodatreks.com/treks/trek-leaders/major-charlie-lynn-oam-ol/ Amazing experience as we had Anzac Day there and went to the Dawn Service at Bomana Cemetry. You need good and comfortable shoes, blister/lambs wool etc. for blisters - FEET health is key. And they'll take you to only take 3 pairs of socks - take one pair for every day because if you cross a river, they never dry. On our trip it rained every afternoon we got into camp and drying clothes over the fire was only so so. It's ok to put on damp clothes but damp socks would spell disaster for your feet. ps. in relation to Track or Trail - The Aussies overwhelmingly referred to it as the Track. The yanks were more inclined to say Trail (when they eventually arrived). Read lots and get the most out of it. The hiking is pretty easy if you're fit. If you're like me, it's the camping that's tough!! ha ha

  5. Should vegans be allowed to call something ice cream if there's no cream in it???
  6. We are animals (mammals) and are designed to eat meat.
  7. or disadvantage? Being rather musical (ie. dancer) I find it hard to listen to music and run if I don't run in time with it! I find listening to podcasts much easier. I then kind of run through the music rather than with it.
  8. 2018 Report Card Sport: Feb: Busselton 1/2 marathon and Jetty Swim day after. Registered. TICK March: Rottnest SwimRun TICK March: Port-2-Pub Duo 1/2 TICK (Cancelled at 9km mark due to weather). November: Considering Osaka Marathon (finances/leave dependent) Changed to Jerusalem Marathon 2019. Non Sport: Don't get uptight when things don't go to plan, or people do stupid things. "Let it Go"! Getting better. Not to swear (will give $ to charity when I do) Getting better (had a swear jar at work). Not drinking during the week FAIL Accept my singledom and be happy with who I am. Happily Failed! 😉 So.... 2019 Sport: March: Jerusalem Marathon (Registered) Nothing else at this stage...will return to ballet now that my niggles are ironing out. Non Sport: ...Will keep working on these: Don't get uptight when things don't go to plan, or people do stupid things. "Let it Go"! Breathe and keep my mouth shut. Not to swear (will give $ to charity when I do). Not drinking during the week.
  9. Great read Katz. Well done. Impressed.
  10. Some guy was talking about this on Sunrise yesterday. Saying taping your mouth shut is beneficial for a host of reasons: keeping your airways moist, better O2 exchange, better overall rhythm for your body...and therefore better sleep. Better sleep equals better health etc.
  11. no -- not cool. Lanes 1 and 2 of the track need to be protected more than the others.
  12. Hi peeps, Has anyone done, or know anyone who's done the Jerusalem marathon? Thinking of signing up for March next year. Turtle
  13. They can - but your dog isn't competing at the Olympics. That's the point here.
  14. Coogee NSW or Coogee WA???
