Woohoo Parkrun's come to Canberra! I thought 9am was pretty early to do 5kms in the UK, but they've Australianised it here and made it 8am. Nice course following the edge of Lake Ginninderra for a bit and only the first and last bit being out and back. Got into the lead quite early on and it soon became a time trial against my future self running this course so I thought I'd give myself something to be happy about in the future and didn't go too hard. Plus my body wasn't quite awake and up for much more. Not especially well marshalled - I was a bit unsure a few times, and the bloke behind me went the wrong way and got in a massive, very amusing, strop at the finish. Plus it appears to have been 140-150m too long. Time was going to be slow in any case, but this made it really slow. Anyway, nice to win the first parkrun here. Matt Ellis can't take that away from me.
