Support Local Living

Are you fed up of large corporations taking over and everything looking the same? I know I am. This blog shares a year in the life of a local family, supporting local living and local businesses.

Early start

on February 4, 2012

This morning, despite it being a Saturday, my alarm went of at 5:15am. I must admit it was very tempting to turn it off and roll over, especially after a late night and 2 little ones sneaking in about half way through (If you’ve every slept in the same bed as small children you’ll know they have an incredible ability to twist and turn, kick and punch, rock and roll, all while they sleep soundly…. it is not a comfortable night!

Despite all that, I didn’t press snooze, instead jumped out of bed and headed down towards Victoria Point to meet with the Bayside Runners and Walkers (BRW). The BRW meet every Saturday morning at 6am for a beautiful run along the waterfront.

You really can’t complain when this is the view from your morning run…

“We had our first run on Saturday 9th May 2009 with a humble beginning of 4 people attending,and we have grown with our regular Saturday morning sessions having an average of 50 runners and walkers in attendance.” In fact there are well over 100 runners and walkers that attended the group (not all at once though…)

The BRW aim to support runners and walkers of all fitness levels and running with them on a Saturday morning is completely free. You can go as fast or slow as you like, and everyone is welcoming of new comers. The group varies massively in fitness level, from multi-marathon runs to us out on a gentle Saturday plod, but it is wonderful to be surrounded by a group of such supportive people.

If you are interested in increasing your fitness level and meeting a wonderful group of like-minded local people, then it’s the only place to be 🙂
