Performance of the Month - October
Congratulations to Jared McDougall on his victory in the 200m Open race at the SA Athletic League Flinders meet on 29 October - one of the toughest races to win on the circuit.
"Jared's face said it all trying to hang on at the finish line, even his beard had trouble holding on he was going so fast." - proud coach Ali Saliu .
This is Jared's first open sash, and we are sure there will be many more to come.
Jared wins a $20 voucher to spend in the Sharks online uniform shop - good work fella!

Ramblings of an Ancient Runner
or "A Personal Account of This Year's Budapest Marathon"
Mick and Eva Atherton recently took a month long trip to Europe, culminating in an assault on the Budapest Marathon. As an experienced runner, Mick has documented some of his journey as he prepared for the marathon and his account of the big day. Thanks for sharing Mick :)
Marathons are not just about running 42km but are the culmination of a long arduous journey with many potential pitfalls along the way. In my experience there are four important building blocks or steps on the way to achieving a successful marathon and each one can have a crucial effect come race day. All four of these building blocks had a significant bearing on my Budapest marathon result on the 15th of October 2017.
