PAA Conference Darling Harbor Sydney

The PAA organised a fabulous event again this year.  The International Conference Center, ICC, Darling Harbor, Sydney was a wonderful venue.  Clean and new, floor space was adequate, as you will be aware Pilates Reformers Cadillac’s etc take up a lot of room plus bodies.  The food provided was scrumptious and the National and International Presenters were superb.

Joanne Gosselin – My Boston Marathon

  Attached are two pictures of me running the recent Boston Marathon. The first one (with the big building in the background) was taken as I ran the final 500m along Boylston St. with the finish line in sight. The second one was taken with 1 mile (1.6km) to go – as the sign says. I was very tired and frozen in these pictures, as evidenced by the low feet and clenched hands. Joanne ran the New York marathon this year and did very well.  She talked about the freezing conditions, 5 degrees , raining and a head wind.  Joanne finished with hypothermia and needed medical attention, she says, …But as these pictures show, I still ran to the finish with a smile, and it was an experience I will never forget. Definitely one of the highlights of my life, to be a part of such an iconic and major[…]
