I ran the Summer Series race last night. Not fast, but with good place judgement. My hamstring was very sore so I ran with Strewth and eased back to let her finish ahead of me. She was 76th, I was 77th. Then for the $50 Runners shop barrel draw prize number 75 was drawn. Don’t blame me, I had told Strewth to pass the next runner in front of her but she didn’t. Runner 75 wasn’t there so they did a redraw, and it was mine, 77. Funnily I would have left if it wasn’t for Mick C stopping me and getting something from me, which took a few moments. Then I was just about to drive off when my number was called out and Strewth called me back. So by the time I share out my prize with Mick C and Strewth, I might have enough of it left to buy some shoelaces. But to win a voucher was a brilliant example of good place judgement.

  1. Woohoo! Do they sell wine at the Runner's Shop?

    Poor Strewth. She's prone to misplacing things. It's those seniors' moments.

  2. No, ask Aki - I'm just kind - I have a sixth sense and know it's important for my friends to win the barrel draws! Just run near me and yu have a chance! Note, that was the sprint marathon where I was smiling, not plugging up that 2km hill in the cross country yesterday trying to catch my speedyleader!
