In 27 sleeps, I get on a plane to Tassie for the very exciting Fagus Week Workshop near Cradle Mountain. I have been slowly getting myself organised… shopping online for thermals (none for sale up here!!!), toying with the idea of buying a new lens (no one seems to have it in stock though), daydreaming about the awesome scenery I’m going to see, and, of course, getting very excited about meeting fellow Bubblers whose work I have been admiring since I first joined this website in 2009!!
On Tuesday evening, I bumped into a friend of mine down at the beach. She was running… I had my camera in hand. We both agreed that we should probably occasionally do what the other was doing. So on Wednesday evening, I left the camera at home and headed to the beach with Banjo for a jog.
Actually, that’s not true. I went there for a run… but it ended up a jog.
The cold, hard (or rather hot, sweaty) truth is that somewhere along the line, I’ve gone from being an impressive demonstration of athleticism (see here) to plain UNFIT.
So, I am now on a mission. I have 27 days to get myself into some semblance of fitness so that I can keep up with Rob Mullner. I know it’s not necessary – Mark has assured me that there are walks for EVERYONE, so I know that if it all comes to nothing, I’ll still be one happy chappy, but still…. it’s good to have a mission.
So. Game on. :)
Oh, and in case you hadn’t heard about the awesomeness that will be Fagus Week 2013, THERE ARE STILL PLACES AVAILABLE! I’m not sure about the whole week, but send Mark (Tinnieopener) a bubblemail and ask. I’m getting there a bit early. It really begins on Sunday, April 21st, but my mum and I are doing a bit of travel together before the week officially kicks off. I really can’t wait to meet those who are coming – so far I know that I’ll be joining Tinnieopener, ClaireBear, Rob Mullner, David Murphy, Rosie Appleton, Garth Smith, Mel Brackstone and skot, Mark Shean, Warren Patten, Julie White, Ian Berry, Kenny, Sharon Kavanagh, Kylie Reid, Kylie Sheahen, Donovan Wilson, Stephanie Johnson, Tony Crehan, Brett Chatwin, Dave Callaway, Nick Skinner, Penny and Elaine Teague… have I missed anyone??
Bring on the Fagus!!!
