SAAC Race Recap: Dooen Engineering

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 placing.

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.
2015-Dooen-EngineeringWith a downhill start I knew that the first few k’s were going to 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.
