Good news & bad news from today's monthly handicap at the Arboretum. Good news is I moved to 3rd on the overall pointscore but may get overtaken in the last 2 events by runners that have races in hand. Good news is I overtook Strewth, even with sore ribs & having been up and down Mt Tennent yesterday. Bad news, didn't catch CJ who finished 1'22" in front of me, she finished 9th, brilliant effort.
Good course at the Arboretum, nice soft tracks to run on, even sandy in places which I like. The up hill finish meant not holding back at all, even the early starters could get up some good pace right from the gun.
