A BIG Congratulations to Kylie Pickering who completed her first half marathon last weekend. Kylie was hoping for under 2hrs and smashed that coming in at 1hr48mins. FANTASTIC effort!
Oh and she then backed up for the Beep Test on Monday!
We did our very first Beep Test, which when announced generated some varied responses from groaning to excitment. For many of you it was your first Beep Test experience, and for others it bought back childhood memories (or nightmares!).
Everybody did extremely well, with several of the guys getting past 10 and it went down to the wire with Matt Shephard and Matt Lyne, with Matt Lyne finishing on 12.6. Well done to all. The results will be posted in the Time Trial section soon.
Thanks to all of you who came along to our first BRS party at the Ship Inn after the gruelling Beep Test on Monday night. Great to see smiles on everybody's faces especially at the site of a well earned beer and dinner.
Congratulations to our award winners:
Claire Lynch - Took home a devine bottle of Spring Vale Pinot for her Most Improved due to her outstanding 2min35 PB at the Cool Night Classic.
Micheal Keetman - Took home a 12month subscription to Runner's World Magazine for his Most Consistent BRSer award. This was a close race with Kylie, Darryl and Claire coming close runner ups for the most sessions attended. Well done to all.
PLEASE NOTE: training will be as per usual over the holiday season so those of you keen to continue over Christmas/New Year, you know where to find us!!
Renae & Matt
