+10c, clear sky & strong wind at start.

A quiet day of running on the open and windblown prairie; that is, until I
had reached the finish and it was time to put up the tent..
- The combination of hard wind with very strong gusts & a somewhat tired
runner made it a wrestle and a clash of forces. One force tried its best
not to let the tent conquer the ground (this was most of the time the
wind; but you could have doubts ;-)
The runner, cursing, jerking and kicking the innocent aussie tent from
Sydney, determined to make the tenting happen; sooner rougher than later!
After a match which might could have inspired Jacques Tati or Charles
Chaplin, the tent rose (though collapsing a couple of times, of course).
Jolly good fun in lack of a TV.. #@¡¤¥ ;-)
