Goodna Jacaranda Festival Fun Run

I reread last year's blog entry for this event to check my time. I did it then in 42:04. Sadly I was a bit slower this year and finished in 43:13. Oh well! next year will be better.

One guy, who would be in his sixties, finished in 36:41. How's that? His name was Tom Nugent. Anyone ever heard of him?

For our $5 entry fee we each (about 25 of us) got a certificate with our official times and a medallion. The same young fellow, 17 year old Darryl Crooke, who won last year, won again this year in the same time of 34 Mins. He said he hadn't been training.

I haven't heard of him Eddie, but that's an awesome time. You did pretty well considering your recent marathon.

As for the winner - the power of youth and talent goes a long way!
