An­other damp run

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

PARKRUN: When those gen­tle un­du­la­tions of the Air­lie Beach parkrun course feel like moun­tains and the fin­ish line seems so far away.

When you feel the breath­ing and hear the foot­steps of a ri­val com­ing up from be­hind – you want to dig deeper but have noth­ing more to give.

When you have given it your all and don’t even have the en­ergy to smile for Tim Oberg be­hind the parkrun cam­era, you know you have run a good race.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to all the parkrun­ners this week who achieved per­sonal bests. The drizzly con­di­tions didn’t stop 51 com­peti­tors tak­ing part and the cooler con­di­tions made the run a lit­tle eas­ier this week.

For the se­cond week in a row, Peter Moore – in a new per­sonal best – won the run. An un­known run­ner took out se­cond and Jonathan Good made it home in third.

Kris­tine Tracey, Holly Moore and Aimee Sulzberger were the first three women home, Holly and Aimee with per­sonal bests and Kris­tine vis­it­ing from Scot­land.

Other ath­letes to achieve per­sonal bests this week in­cluded Jonathan Good, Peter Car­ruthers, Ayla Hadley, Gemma Ryan, Sindy His­cox, Kim Dichiera and Megan Dren­nan.

A big wel­come to all the new­bies who com­peted in their first parkrun on Satur­day. They were Da­ley Moore, Ebonni Pat­ti­son, Jack Telford, Rachelle Telford, Sharon Pur­cell, Lynn Mathers, Ni­cole Rosser and Di Col­lis.

Be at the Abel Point Ma­rina at 7am Satur­day to get in­volved in parkrun.

GOOD RUN: Last week’s parkrun­ner of the month Matthew Curr.
