Saturday 20th of April was a sensational sunny Autumn day here in Stawell. And what a fantastic turn out for SAAC run – the Advanced Bricks Handicap. It was 6.5km run through the Ironbarks.
My handicap time 12mins 15secs, and I was running with Justine & Peter. I made sure to start my watch this time. I was NOT going to make the same mistake that’s for sure.
The track for this particular run was a figure 8 with a bit of a loop. Yeah makes no sense until you see a map.

I was really, and I mean really happy with how I ran this race. I was happy at my pace, my tempo and my overall performance. Sure I came in 4th, however it’s always not about winning. I had a great time in the race, and that’s how it should be. My running has improved tenfold. The fact that I ran 6.5km at a 4.50 pace tells me that my goal of getting that 1h45min half marathon time is oh so much closer.
The winner of the race was Tony in a time of 40:36 (actual time 29:56). Richard came in 2nd in a time of 42:15 (actual time 31:35), and Rhonda was 3rd in 42:38 (actual time 34:28).
Me? well as I said, I came in 4th at 43:30 (actual 31:15). A sub 32min 6.5km! Yeah baby!
And now for photo’s, cause who doesn’t love photo’s.
The next SAAC run will be held in Horsham. Now Horsham is flat, so I hope to see some fast times.
