JT1 Report – Saturday 20th June

We had 14 hardy souls turn out for the first of the JT Series on Saturday at
Victoria Park. It was a bit of a gloomy afternoon and very chilly so there
was only one thing to do to keep the blood flowing and that was to RUN!

The event was a ‘Guess your time’ exercise with glory going to he or she who
could run the closest to their estimated duration. So after a casual jog
around the 1.8km loop, all watches were confiscated and the contenders
lodged their times with our timing officials Rachel and Cate.

Sam, Benita, Beth and John all opted for the single lap. The rest of us
clearly needed more warming up and set our sights on the double.

There are a lot of factors to consider when estimating the perfect time, and
most assembled were aware of Marisol’s pedigree in this area having won this
title the last 2 years in a row. So how much would the mud play a part? The
uphill and the steps? How many walkers might there be on the tracks? Would
there be vicious dogs? Car traffic on the 2 road crossings? And the timber
lookout – as slippery as an ice rink!

And then they were off…. John and Tane shot to the lead.The rest of us
slipped and slid about on the shaded tracks above Bowenvale and did our best
to stay upright. The uphill was tough, the timber walkway was lethal, and
the chain across one track nearly tripped a few of us.

And then it was done. We were finished. We were warm. We were keen to see if
Marisol had made it 3 in a row!… No! If she’d stuck with her original
guess (before changing her mind), she would have won – 1 second off the
mark. But she didn’t, so she didn’t.

Instead it was Mum, Chris taking the honours – running 5 seconds quicker
than her guessed time. The minor placings went to Chris Wells and Ed Jones –
both 8 seconds adrift of their estimates.

Tea and biscuits followed (very civilised) before the chill and the fading
light sent us all homeward for a hot shower and a nana nap (that was me
anyway).

Tune in for the next version of the JT – Saturday 18th July 2.30pm. Venue
and format to be advised.

Thanks Al for the report and Chris R for collating the results.
