STEVE MONEGHETTI : Marathon man, Olympian, Commonwealth Games Champion, Gold medallist, Legend of the sport, devoted athlete, running mentor to thousands, one of Australia’s all time great long distance runners and motivational superstars.

CAROL GILMOUR : Plodder, ordinary everyday girl, new to the sport, tries hard, creaky knees, back of the pack, one foot in front of the other, huffing and puffing, but keeps coming back for more.

What a thrill that Steve was once again an Ambassador at the Surf T Surf and this year was running it. And here we were, racing each other in the 10km event. Racing Mona, not something I ever thought I would say, ha! Except I only got to see him run for one second as he sprinted on past at the double back on the course. He ran the 10km in 32:12 and I puffed my way back over the line at 1:12:09. But still, we were entered in the same event and we raced each other, right, even if he didn’t know it!!! Then afterwards I got a chance meeting with him, he was totally lovely, listened to me as if I was the most important person in the world, gave me such encouragement and said he’d see me next year! You can count on it Steve, I’ll be back.
