PyCon AU 2013 running update

Following up from an earlier post, we’ve had three runs so far at PyCon AU.

Saturday morning’s forecast was 4°C, 50km/hr winds, hailstorms and snow down to 200 metres. Fortunately, we managed to miss the wild weather and had a great run through Battery Point across to Constitution Dock and back.

Sunday was colder, with black ice out on some of the roads, which eight of us avoided with a beautiful beach run down to Long Beach and back, with the sun rise casting spectacular colours over the snow on Mt Wellington.

This morning we had five runners to tackle the bush tracks just north of the casino. A plan to just run some trails became a climb to the signal station at the top of Mount Nelson, watching the sun rise over southeast Tasmania.

We will be doing our final run tomorrow morning before the last day of sprints. 7am at the casino reception if you are interested — it will be a flatter run!
