Race 7  CRR Handicap 15/9/13
Monday 16 September 2013
Race 7 CRR Handicap 15/9/13

Everyone knows Jimmy T can run ultras and has won local and international events at outrageous distances.  A recent Glasshouse event saw him lower his sights a bit and take on the 10k, a distance he'd usually call a warm up, and he smashed it with a finish of 36 minutes!  Of course he's gifted but he also trains very hard to fulfil his potential as we found out last weekend when we ran from Jimmy's backyard at Delaney’s Creek. Results below (more follow).

Mad Macca set a 5k loop from Jimmy's farmhouse out toward the main road, a dead straight but rolling track with consistent short sharp inclines to keep everyone honest.  True to form Macca hit the first k under 3:50 and turned in 9:38 despite the heat and the course.  Macca wasn't the only one with a rush of blood and the field was tightly bunched on the return journey, including Julie, Wendy and Trish from Kilcoy who joined us on the day.  In fact, Trish was looking much focussed and a little too close to the local lads as the 5k runners pealed back into Jimmy's place while the 10k gluttons continued in the opposite direction for the second 5k loop.

And here the 10k masochists all learnt the first lesson according to Jimmy T, if you want to run well, train on hills and if you're going to run hills pick decent ones.  Ever seen a road advisory sign like this one?

Ok so Campbell’s Pocket is a 10 or 15 in places, but 35!  To quote our resident rogue Macca, "It's runable.....just".  And Jimmy trains on this stuff all the time. 'Nuff said.

This is the view at the top before another drop, turnaround and back up again.  Parso turned briefly to admire the vista spread out below and was startled to see Trish just a matter of metres behind and looking determined.  It was only some desperate down hills with the brakes off and the pedal flat to the floor that saved his bacon.....or potato.  In fact the last k was a 4:02 with Trish just seconds behind at the line.  Awesome effort.

By my GPS it was 10.14k but I paid absolutely no attention to the elevation gain after the heart rate monitor beeped at 102% of max....sometimes you just don't want to know. 

Beside Trish showing us all how to really run hills, the performance of the day went to Mappo who took handicap honours in the 5k on this difficult course just 14 seconds off his handicap.  Mappo is closing in on his goal of 5mpk and might well do that in Race 8 at Centenary Lakes in October.  Let’s hope so because it could also mean Mappo sweeps all before him with a well-deserved win in the 5k series.  He’s been oh so close in past years, but this could be his moment in the sun.  Peter Mck is another determined improver within striking distance but a trip overseas will prevent him raising a challenge this year.  Macca turned in a creditable second then jogged to the summit to egg everyone on.  Russell, Tash and Sonja all completed the 5k distance and Gabby J very kindly offered to manage the timing and did a sterling job.

Apart from our visitors there were just 3 starters in the 10k.  This prompted further debate about some aspects of the handicap series and it has been decided to revert to one single competition next year which will be 5k as this is the most popular distance for the majority of club members.  If you want to run longer you can race the 5, then run back out and do the same course as you please, no different to most events we run now.

Steve took handicap honours and on best 5 events to date sits right behind Francis for a massive showdown at the decider next month.  An outright win to the little Pom will give him victory but we know Francis gives no quarter and he’ll be fully recovered from a hot and dusty 100 kilometres at Glasshouse just a week ago.  Although Parso and Bill both sit in third place, there’s little prospect either can do enough or hope that the opposition doesn’t turn up at all, to get a result.  Points score below.

As mentioned we were joined by some Kilcoy triathletes of the female persuasion and their performances were outstanding.  Trish almost took an outright win in the 10k and both Wendy and Julie toughed it out to finish well.  We hope these folk will be joining the club soon – more from QA on membership very soon I hope.

Next race is from the oval at Centenary Lakes, our Thursday night venue, in October.  It will be the same format as last time we ran here including some laps of the grass track and adjacent pedestrian pathways.  Being the final event we’ll follow it with few snags and drinks post-race.  So turn up, run your best no matter where you are on the leader board and see if you can stuff up the point scores for the contenders – hey, we’ve all got to have our fun!  Here's your race times for all events this year.

In other club news Laimon ran a great time at the chaplaincy run recently.  Julie scored third place in the Bribie Surf Club 5k event with Parso first loser behind a local high school lad.  This run is planned to become an annual event.  Wonderful to see participants from Banksia State School including the Principal, many teachers, parents and kids.  So good to see kids out doing something physical, and Banksia school provides a great community and learning environment for its students, including some of our grandkids.

Dave and Macca ran the Northlakes Parkrun on Saturday and put together some cracking performances.  Dave, in his usual tidy and determined manner, finished on 18 minutes exactly with Macca just seconds behind.  Dave’s age graded performance now edges up the 8thpercentile, a mere 1% behind another club stalwart.  I fear it’s only a matter of time.  Congratulations guys.  Speaking of Parkrun some of us have run with Dave Sweeney, an elite masters runner.  I see his time at Sandgate recently of 16:12 was the highest age graded results of every Parkrun on that day worldwide!  Yep, the best in the world.

Finally, Sunday arvo saw some of our clubbies on kayaks at Bribie floating upright, most of the time anyway, in preparation for a planned paddle around the island soon.  The “training” soon declined into a slow meander at the will of the tide with the sun shining on the millpond of Pumicestone, in the lee of the island at least.  We may only get as far as Woorim but we’ll do it with style.
