The weather was cold, windy and wet for this evening’s Broulee Run/walk. Yet 34 tough competitors completed the event. Julie De Ernsted turned up to run having recovered from her triathlon last Sunday in Wollongong in 40-degree heat. Her excellent place in her category was achieved by the hard work she put into her training.
We welcomed Bean Melgaard to his first run with the group.
David West ran a personal best time in the 2 kilometres. In the 5 kilometres Anthony Miles and Rob Ryan improved.
Ruby Connor and Iona Kelly are two very talented young athletes. Only one second separates them over the 2-kilometre distance. Iona time of 8.10 is the bench mark at this stage. As they are both only in primary school it is expected that this time will be bettered by one of them in the near future.
Above: The intrepid at the start line ready and willing! As you can see it was very cold!
