Near record rain and the accompanying wind did not dampen the enthusiastic 21 athletes from participating in this evening’s Broulee Run. History has shown that no matter how bad the conditions people will come and as usual they perform with distinction.
In the 3.5 kilometres Jason Domeny recorded his third personal best time in as many starts over this distance. Also, Angus Murphy showed that he is an excellent mud runner with an improvement of 43 seconds.
In the 5 kilometres Bede Webster recorded a personal best time. His secret is to run bare footed and those who purchase the most expensive running shoes may consider this as an alternative in their quest for excellence. Greg Whipp ran an outstanding time of 21.02 in the 5 kilometres to improve by 147 seconds. Deb Connaughton ran an impressive time of 25.49, which is only 28 second off her best time over this distance set in 2008.
