RACE DAY – From the training for other races, it was a run with a difference as I kept my eyes peeled for mate SDenham as I guessed he would have a faster pace than me. It kept me giggles as I went round. I loved it with so many things to look at. Did a good time and shaved off minutes with a sprint finish. It was his first race ever, so it was really funny. Really happy.
