Run 1:55:00  21.1 km (5:27 / km)
Ended up as a run which didn't live up to its initial promise, drifting out of it a bit and lacking energy on the hills (except for the biggest one, strangely enough). Like a few of my longer runs lately, this was out towards Greensborough and Montmorency, though came back through an area of the Streeton Views estate that I haven't been through before (including a nice pocket in a bushy gully); quite hilly for much of the way.
I was wondering if I would find a few people with sore heads still dragging themselves away from the Greensborough football clubrooms (they won the local grand final yesterday). I didn't, but there were still plenty of cars in the car park, most of them presumably belonging to people who decided (or had decided for them) that they were in no fit state to drive home last night.
Odd spot of the closing stages was seeing a real estate sign which, even by the usual standards of elastic interpretation of the English language in that industry, was bizarre: I'm struggling to think of any plausible interpretation of the word under which a property on Rosanna Road, Heidelberg could be described as "serene". (For those not from Melbourne, Rosanna Road is probably one of the busiest roads in the whole city that people actually live on, and - probably ineffectual - promises to do something about it have come from both sides in the election campaign).
Ticked off a few more streets today: Ann Ct, Montmorency, Anne Ct, Yallambie and Anthony Ct, Banyule. That will be it now until December because the next one on my list is too far away to be in range on anything I have planned this week.
Part of the rest of the day was spent at the pleasingly well-attended climate march in the city (why is it that Melbourne always draws by far the best crowd for these? - somewhere around 20,000 today). As is often the way at such gatherings, there were also some other causes being espoused on the fringes, some of them of questionable relevance to climate change, such as ending the persecution of Falun Gong in China and independence for the Western Sahara.
