It was a strange- and ultimately- special night of track last night. We had just 4 races and 16 athletes, but they managed to fit in a lot of great racing between them! Every race came down to a kick and we had fully 7 personal bests- including massive breakthroughs in the 5k from Elise, Courtney, Sean, and Grant (results below)! It’s not how we’d choose to use this fitness in normal times, but it’s a reminder that to do a thing well is it’s own reward. We know there is some frustration about the lack of a live stream, but that was a condition of the venue that graciously hosted us. We hope to have race videos edited and up for your viewing pleasure by the end of the week. If all goes well we will have announcements about further racing early next week! ⠀ Women’s 1500 1.

Daniel goes into his start in running, including his time running for Eastern Kentucky in the competitive US College system, then goes into the concept of professional multisport and its scene before his return to running via Wellington Scottish and the marathon, running 2:20 on debut at the 2018 Gold Coast Marathon, before closing on his plans for the short-term future and comments on the current NZ running scene.
