40, Australian Running Festival in Canberra, 10k, 37:52, 26th Open Male, 4th 40-49 Male
Ran a solid 10k across a hilly course on a cool, clear day, with relatively minimal training leading into it. Proves that the hard work from last year with SWEAT has built a solid foundation. St Peters Parkrun in Sydney, 5k, 18:15, 5th Overall, 5k PB (Road)
Ran a surprising 5k Road PB on a hilly, sopping wet course after a tiring week of training which included a hard 7x1k two days earlier. Very satisfying result. Sub-18 is on the cards.
In 2016 Ingrid Grace has run the Sydney Striders10k Series each month and placed first in her category each time at around 43:30 each time. These Strider 10k’s included the that was also the Greater Sydney 10, an ANSW race, on a very smokey morning in May placing first in category. She ran with her age categor Strider team at the Miranda Relays going out as first runner. The Sydney Morning Half Marathon in1:37:22 followed hard on the heels of the Salt Lake City Half Marathon Utah. The Salt Lake City Half has been the highlight of the year so far for this runner.

The placing was an unexpected delight!
