Natascha de Jager WAT IS JOU STORIE (From Eric and Amanda Economon) The Festival of Running took place at Phobians Club, Pretoria between 27 Dec 2013 and 2 January Amanda Economon participated in the 6 day event. The aim was to run as many kilometers as you like around a 500m circuit. Amanda set a new national record in her age category, earned a Silver medal, finished 5th lady and 10th position overall by covering km. Eric Economon also participated in the event and due to medical reasons was allowed only to walk and covered 90km finishing second last. A police officer in a small town stopped a motorist who was speeding down Main Street. "But officer," the man began, "I can explain." "Just be quiet," snapped the officer. "I'm going to let you cool your heels in jail until the chief gets back." "But, officer, I just wanted to say,..." "And I said to keep quiet! You're going to jail!" A few hours later the officer looked in on his prisoner and said, "Lucky for you that the chief's at his daughter's wedding. He'll be in a good mood when he gets back." "Don't count on it," answered the fellow in the cell. "I'm the groom."
