Anyone remember the president of the Melbourne chapter of the Ferals?? This postcard is from Chris.

Hi All - Johanna and Neil first?
 
I thought that it would be appropriate to provide a quick update - now that we've been gone since April 2007!
 
Melbourne is going well, albeit with a gaping hole in my Saturday afternoons now that i dont have the feral runs to go to on the hill. Kate is still working the Police (much to my dismay) and i am still with the eng. consulting firm so i guess on that front we have been doing well. We are playing touch once a week down here which is great fun. Problem is, the temperature doesn't get above 35 degrees, so you don't get that dry - roasted feeling we onced cherised in Griffith. I am running a fair bit and swimming. they have these new inventions called a 50m pool down here, so that has been fun doing laps in.
 
I've even got Kate into adventure racing - when hansie and i raced our team name was 'BFAM: brothers from another mother'. Kate and i race under the name 'Lovers from another mother' but it doesn't get the same laughs.
 
I was busted doing the melbourne marathon again by Theresa, Arun and i heard Glenys was out there also. It was great to see some familiar faces out there on the war path. i ran in  3:35:06 this year which is 7 minutes quicker than last year and the conditions were pretty bad (hot) so i am really happy with my time.
 
We keep in regular contact with Hansie - He is in PNG and working as a coffee trader. He comes back to Austrlia every couple of months and we make him bring duty free grog and free coffee, so it's a relationship i'm keen to keep going. Rumor has it that he is meeting up with some girl he knew at Uni in South Africa when he comes back to Australia - i'm sure he's happy that i am telling everyone about it.
 
I have attached some pics from Melbourne Marathon and one of kate and myself overseas in June/July.
 
speak soon & keep running
