Occupy Adelaide!

I’m working in sunny Adelaide today and tomorrow and catching up with my pal David – I saw the picture above in Hindmarsh Square. For those that don’t know Adelaide (and outside Australia, I suspect there may be many of you), it’s not really on a par with Wall Street or the City of London – for that reason, it struck me as a somewhat incongruous spot for an ‘Occupy’ protest.
I ran to and from work yesterday (33km), setting out around 5:45. I weighed my pack when I got home in the evening, but was a little discouraged to see 6.5kg on the scales; I’m expecting around 10kg for MDS...
I had an early start today too, up at about 4:50 - thankfully before the alarm went off so didn’t wake Blain. I did the ‘300’ workout in the gym here– I’ve brought my running stuff but didn’t really have the energy this evening, plus I’m working through some sample exams to prep for Saturday. Tomorrow’s another day! My hotel is right next to Adelaide’s Botanic Park, so I’ll make a point to check it out.
Btw - My pal (and Resources Guru) Nick texted this morning with some inspiration – he did the run from Crow’s Nest to Balmoral Beach – go Nick!!
