Monthly handicap No 167 and the last one for me until August, so I raced hard. Nothing to lose, may be go back one start group, but I did get a lift after the wet race day in November.
Really enjoyed today, I had Michelle on my tail all the way back, trying to stay in front and giving her some one to chase and catch.
She did pass me with a hundred metres to go, she has a good sprint finish. I passed both Strewth & Ewen near the 4 km mark, obviously tired from yesterday's long run ( benefit of the doubt).
Some may say they didn't like the change in the course, it wasn't our preferred choice, but every one races over the same terrain.
