If you are taking on the 10th anniversary of the UTA 100, you want everything to be perfect in the lead up to this arse kicking 100k’r. You don’t want a massive storm front with torrential rain that forces significant course changes and you definitely don’t want to be carrying a knee injury into the race.
Pip Candrick can laugh about it now but these issues were not the most serious challenges during her first UTA 100. We sat down with her post race.
Bam! 2017 is here and 2016 is relegated to history, a ghost of the past.
I’ve been thinking a lot about 2016, reflecting on the year before the highlights dim in my memory. It was a remarkable year for many reasons, especially in sporting terms. 2016 has been called the year of the underdog, but I think that undermines or disguises what I believe is a subtle change transpiring across the globe.
Recently I got my hands on a Kusaga Athletic singlet and I thought what better way to test it out than during the 56km Two Bays Trail Run, on the Mornington Peninsula.
I'm so glad I did, the singlet was and is incredibly comfortable, as much or more so than any other shirt/singlet I've worn whilst out running.
What if athletes ran the world?
Your job would be valued by how many chances you took and opportunities you seized rather than the amount of money you made. Determination, enthusiasm, and a willingness to do the unexpected would shape our society.
