School Sports Day 100 metres

Having finished second to last in my son's school sports day 100 metre Dads' race - I have just realised something I wasn't second last, I was first vet 50!!!


  • Yebbut how far did your garmin say you ran?  Chip or gun time?  And was there a goody bag at the end?

    Powerof10 or it didn't happen.


  • What shoes did you wear? Road or trail?

  • That's it, look on the bright side. image

    I'm sure you'd have had them all had it been over a longer distance? image

    Did you use an ipod? image

  • Forgot to take my three imodium tablets or go through my race routine, garmin didn't pick up a signal, and didn't even get a sticker!!!!

    Wore my ordinary shoes which shows Gordon Pirie and Jim Peters were both right - you don't need expensive technical shoes!!! just old plimsolls!!!

    Did you keep your egg in the spoon?

    Was it the classic dodgily measured school "100metres" track where 5 or 6 kids got sub 11.

    And then got to to a proper track and couldn't break 13 image

    I remember doing 4:20 in the long jump as a 10 year old, and then moved to secondary school and never broke it.

    maybe ask them to put the results in WAVA order? you might found out you won image


  • I got third place in the sack race, and got a certificate image (I'm sure I was actually second though; the finish line officials were not on the ball image )

  • Not sure I would have managed with an egg or spoon ast that looked quite technical - haven't had an offical time yet - I am sure that it was an accurately measured 100 metres, as Winston in year 6 ran 8.9 seconds and he is quick.

  • Wishful thinking!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Do you think they would frown if I turned up in my lycra shorts and pulled my spikes on?

    Last time I did the Dad's race I was already in 6th place by the B of Bang. I managed to get one or two places back by the end of the 60m. I just needed a few more miles.
