Great conditions for exercise attracted 39 starters to this evening’s event, which will be the second last before daylight saving kicks in and we move to a 5 o’clock start.
We welcomed back Gary Matthews and Debbie Redman after a long absence. Debbie jumped in with both feet and tackled the 5 kilometres and she promises to improve with her next start.
Personal best times were recorded by Selby Johnston, Michelle McPherson and Julianne Domeny.
Julianne continues to improve in the 5 kilometres and following on from her huge PB in the Moruya Town to Surf.
Andrew McPherson, fresh from his appearance in the Blackmores Sydney marathon held last Sunday, ran with his family this evening.
It was his first marathon and he finished with an excellent time of 3 hours and 23 minutes, he was placed in 342th position out of a field on 3,562 runners.
Andrew has been a regular with the group since 11 February 2008 and has 143 runs to his credit.
It is an activity for the family with mother Michelle, Nina and Declan all having more than 40 runs.
Andrew commenced his preparation 20 weeks ago and this consisted of long bike rides and running.
Being a family man, this entailed getting up very early for his runs and one of these was the full marathon distance of 42 kilometres. Although, pleased with his performance he is not sure if there will be another attempt.
