NEW BALANCE SHOE VOUCHERS
supported by THE RUNNING COMPANY
Each month, one runner from the SWEAT morning running squad will win a special award for the "Standout performance of the month". This may involve a person running a pb, fighting adversity, winning their age division in a race, defying the ageing process or a number of other achievements.
The prize is a voucher which entitles the winner to 1 free pair running shoes, PLUS a running kit from New Balance. The shoes will be professionally fitted by the running associates at The Running Company, Bondi Beach
Thanks to all the runners who regularly email me their race results and training progress, especially with split times. Those runners are probably more likely to win such an award, as the coach is reminded nicely of their achievements! I really enjoy reading runners' race and training reports.
Good luck everyone!

SWEAT runners profiles
Name: Louise Arnott
Age Group: 46
Family: James and my crazy 8 year old Annabelle
Job: Drama Teacher at Cranbrook School
How long have you been running? My first real run was down at Bondi 16 years ago. A friend and I just had an idea we would like to have a run, laced up our very average heavy shoes and kept going until Bronte and back.
How long with SWEAT Sydney? 4 Years
Why do you run with SWEAT Sydney? Lots of contributing factors get me up in the morning to have a run with SWEAT. The structure of a programme that works and has variety, friendships and camaraderie that has developed amongst all the other runners at SWEAT, feedback and knowledge from Sean to achieve goals that I never thought were possible.
PBs for favourite distances?
10k – 41.40
21k- 96 mins
Marathon – 3 hours 22
How do you prepare for an event? Cut back the Ks the week before. Definitely a good nights sleep the ‘night before the night before the race’ – guarantee an average night sleep the night before a race which is fine. Day before drink loads of water, eat well and my lucky ‘Salmon’ for dinner the night before. On the day keep as relaxed and calm as possible
Who inspires you? The amazing results from other runners in Sweat Sydney, especially those around your age and time.
Future Running Goals: A 3 hour 15 marathon . Maybe one day break 40mins for a 10k if I can defy the aging process.
Any other hobbies besides running?
Love the theatre – best way to prepare for an event is to see a show the day before!
Drinking coffee and hanging in cafes for as long as the family will allow.
Shopping!! (A dangerous hobby)
Travelling off the beaten track.

Not just for pure runners
triathletes amd other Multi eventers succeed with Sweat
SWEAT coaching is not only for pure runners. Many a triathlete and multi-event competitor have trained under the SWEAT system to improve their running and general fitness.
Pro triathlete MItch Dean trains with our morning squad. Mitch has developed into one of the top running triaithletes in the country.
One of the world's best triathletes, Paul Ambrose, has been a SWEAT athlete. Paul has placed in high profile triathlons all over the planet. He came 5th in the Arizona Ironman in 2009 in an awesome 8 hours 25 minutes.
Top masters triathletes such as Kate Rowe are making it a trademark to cut up their opponents in the run legs of triathlons and are consistently achieving podium finishes.
Dean Deagan, arguably Australia's fittest man, enjoys improving his running skills at SWEAT sessions. Deagan has recently been on the winning team in the Coolangatta Gold. He has achieved top 15 placings in the Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon and the City To Surf, plus has won several fun runs such as The Pub to Pub. His versatility lies in the fact that he has recently been winning kayak paddling events. Deagan is also Australia's no.1 recruiter of star athletes.
You're never too old
Sweaters defy ageing with amazing efforts
Many members of Sweat are in the 50+ age category.
People like champion vet athletes Liz Miller, Keith Bateman and Mary Stringer constantly prove that you don't have to be 21 to look and feel 21. They also prove that they can beat most 21 year olds out there.
