Seymour Super Fun Run - 2013 - Year 12

Starter Photo - 23 November 2013

Report:  We had a small but enthusiastic crowd of 12 FA's toe the line this morning and some pretty fast times laid down today! I can speak for myself that this was one of the most competitive 'fun runs' that I have ever done. We started off way to fast up Old Buck and were anaerobic (I was anyway) as we crossed Mt. Seymour road. Mike F, Jeff, Marc and myself were all pretty close together for most of the climb. Jeff was looking way too comfortable telling us about his running goals, Marc was asking me questions about my life which I could not reply due to my extremely heavy breathing!

We hit the picnic area around 37 minutes Marc picked up some garbage (Sibylle please give him a point for that!). We all headed down to Neds to rip it up! My plan was not to hammer too  hard and enjoy the downhill! Well suffice it to say I had my own problems with a couple of little spills trying to avoid being caught by my buddies chasing me down! We arrived at the bottom of Bottle Top to cross Twin Bridge around 59 minutes, right on time!  As expected Mike caught me on the flat section and passed me, Jeff caught up to me and ran ahead to keep Mike company.  Then Marc caught up to me and being the great sport he is decided to keep me company, although I know he could have run faster.

We climbed up to Figure Eight, then headed to the LSCR, reaching the gazebo around 1:26.

Mike and Jeff are pretty far ahead and running strong at this point. I'm struggling, but Marc is keeping me company, what a guy!

We start Bridle path around 1:56, still on time for a 2:30 finish.  Followed Bridle path and ran horribly with no real 'snap', struggled through this section until the last downhill stretch to the finish.  There was no hope of catching Mike and Jeff, Marc was great keeping me motivated to the finish.

Jeff finished just ahead of Mike. Jeff thought he was setting the course record well in hand (2:31:43), but unfortunately he tied it! Mike F followed shortly after and set a PB of about 7 minutes with a time of  2:31:54, way to go Mike!

Third spot went to Marc and myself with a time of 2:34:30, which wasn't a PB for me, but Marc set a PB (it helped he stayed on course this time!).

Samir got of course and got lots of assistance from people on the course finishing in 3:03. James also pulled in at 3:03, not sure if he ran with Samir or not.

Jackie, Chloe and Glenn cruised to a comfy 3:04 all the while taking pictures and having too much fun, well it is the Seymour Super Fun Run after all! 

Desmond did the smart thing by taking it easy after his recent knee surgery! Nicely done Des!

FrankieDocs had a really nice run and I'm sure he enjoyed the cold yet clear day.  Frankie Docs also has the coolest shorts!

Last but not least is Doris who ran solo the whole run (I think) and finished in a very respectable 3:37.  

Thanks all that came out it was great to have you all attend the 12th edition of the Seymour Super Fun Run!

Happy trails!
