E NEWS 23 JUNE 2016

Isn't it great that we finally have some dry season weather!!  Love the odd goose bump and having to add some warm water to the shower.

Also means training is so much easier, those early runs aren't so sweaty and the water temperature at the pool is just perfect.

Lots happening out there in sport land, hope you enjoy whatever you have lined up this weekend!
