This race review is late.
The Sealed Dooen Engineering handicap happened on 28th March 2015.
However, due to working full time over the Easter break, I was unable to get a review in earlier.
The SAAC race season has officially kicked off with the Dooen Engineering Sealed Handicap.
It was a 5km course set out in the currently very dry Ironbarks.
First up were the sub-juniors. As Miles was still recovering from his operation, only Kayla came out with me to run. There were only 3 subbies so she was bound to get a place.
After handicaps were applied, it ended up being that Kayla came in 1st!
A cracking time too! A runner just like her mum.
And yes she wore her medal all day.
As for me, well no personal bests, but I ran solid, and I was happy with how I ran on the day. Not as fast as in 2014 but that’s ok.
With a downhill start, I knew that the first few k’s were going too fast. No negative split, but you can tell by my split times where the hills were.
So where did I end up placing on handicap? A modest 2nd. I wasn’t expecting that.
Will I win a race in the next few weeks, well we’ll have to see?
