Absolute cracker of a morning, 10 degrees celsius, perfect sunrise and not a breath of wind.

Having a dip at a FKT has been something on my mind for a while, and when I woke up at 4:30am thanks to the kiddies giving me a broken nights sleep I just got up and got my tired Dad butt to the closest start point on the Capital City Trail Loop.

I started the loop at the Collingwood Children’s Farm (as I often do a little trail run from this same start point) and went in an anti-clockwise direction. I went fully unsupported and carried everything in my hydration vest including gels and water. 

I was home by 8:30 to help the Mrs with the breakfast rush and celebrate the run with a well deserved bagel or two and a flat white coffee. 

Ya boy, Jack Nicholls aka THE BLINGWOOD BEAST xoxo
