Midland Womens Road Relays (21/09/2013)

We had one complete team out today plus just the opening leg of a second (Lina who timed 20.22). Overall the team got 9th place against some very strong opposition. First off was Amie who was surprised by the fierce early pace but held her nerve and worked through the pack to hand over to Lynne in 8th place. Amie clocked 15.51 which was a PB by over a minute. Lynne also ran well and managed to pull back 2 places, timing 16.28 and handing over to Hayley in 6th place.  Hayley overtook and got overtaken but scored a net one place improvement (to 5th) in 16.45.  Finally, Sue went off to face the strongest runners of the race and not surprisingly fell back a bit but ran her heart out to score 9th place for the team in 17.37. A good result - now for the Nationals next month!

Thanks to Bob Lynch for the report.
