|Di, me, and Richard... at the finish line|
It meant getting out of bed at 2 am to be picked up by Peter and Trish at 3, in the cold and dark.
The group met at the Brisbane Showground to get our numbers etc. (still dark, and freezing!)
We were then shuttled by bus to the start line.

It was so well organised. Along the route were water stations, banks of porta-loos, musicians playing, and other encouraging groups.

Vicki and Brenden, newlyweds, found each kilometre a reason to celebrate.
Had to have a group photo at the halfway mark.

It was fun, all for an excellent cause (Kids Helpline), the weather was perfect, and 'maybe' we'll do it again next year.... but only if someone ELSE suggests it.
