I mentioned the other day that I believed that Michelle could break 26 minutes for the Maribyrnong 4k and Harry could break 24 minutes.
Bear in mind the course is officially 4.12k -The results are through:
Michelle – 25.56
Harry – 22.41
There were 89 runners in the 4k – 50 male and 39 Female. Michelle came 53rd overall, 15th in her gender and 8th in her category – magnificent effort.
Harry came 35th overall, 29th in gender and 7th in his category -there were only 8 in his category (U15) but all the others were teenagers or close to it – just brilliant
Me – well the official results show Harry beat me although we had the same time -36th overall, 30th in gender and 5th in category. Interestingly if I’d have run alone and fit I c/would have placed 3rd in category and top 20 overall. I’ll make that my goal for next years race! I forgot to mention yesterday that it was perfect weather for a run – overcast, cool, no wind, small field and a flat track – what more could you possibly want?
Took Dr Cills advice and booked in to see a sports doctor at Olympic Park Sports & Medical. Thursday morning they will lighten my wallet by $190!! Mind you if they can fix up my thigh it will be cheap. I just want to run, pain and medication free.
