Dalby Dash 10k

Posted by in Races

I last did Dalby Dash back in 2011, but I’ve always remembered it as my favourite 10k race, albeit not my fastest.  My memory was of a tough 3k hill, a descent into the forest and then a subtle incline for the last 1k.  My memory isn’t quite what it used to be obviously.  The hill went on for almost 4.5k, and I’m...

Like a cowboy without a horse

This week I learned a very important lesson about being over confident in my abilities. It hurts!

My legs appeared to have forgotten there was any kind of flexibility to them, and my long legs made me...
