Dylans winning run

Congratulations to Dylan Scoble winner of the Telstra Store Plenty Valley Little Athletics Handicap – 1600m Final.

Race Report – Dylan Scoble

On Saturday 31st of March Mum, Luke, Max and I arrived at Central Park, Stawell. Max and I were competing in the 800m. I was in the 3rd heat, I finished fourth in my heat, but didn’t make the finals. The next day I was competing in the 100m and the 400m. In the 100m I placed second in my heat, but just missed out on the finals. After the 100m I did the Easter egg hunt, it was a very disappointing efforts as I came out with seven. In the 400m I finished 7th in my heat. On Monday I competed in the 1600m handicap. I started off running a steady place, then at two laps to go Solomon Mieson passed me, I thought he might win. With a lap to go I picked up the pace and caught the pack in front of me, then it was just me and Solomon, at 200m to go I started to catch up to him. Then at the line I just got him by .3 of a second. At the end of the race I got a sash, a trophy and a speaker, I also had to give a speech and if you know me you know that I hate public speaking.


Correction from last weeks newsletter. If you want to help out with pacing or in any other way with the Mothers Dat Classic please contact Kathy Fuller, or Christina Bassani. Narelle Pell is not on the MDC committee as assumed by me. Apologies for any inconvenience. – Steven Trevaskis

What inspired you to start running?

I used to run with my brother when I was little. He was seven years older and I enjoyed running with him
How many years have you been running?

Off and on since I was little
What does a typical training week look like for you?

Currently I’m trying to build my fitness again so aiming for 3-4 sessions a week
What are your running goals for the next 6 months?

Hoping to get back to running a half marathon distance and feeling great after it
What is your biggest challenge and what do you do to manage that challenge?

Running consistently each week after a long time not running whilst juggling a busy job and home life
Have you had a breakthrough in your running, if so, what was it?

Doing my first half marathon and then my first marathon. Before that I didn’t think or believe I could run either distance.

I’ve run 25 half marathons in total and only one marathon
Where is your most enjoyable place to run?

Love running by the sea. However anywhere outside in nature is great.
If you could run in any event in the world, which event would it be?

Lucky enough to run my dream marathon in New York 2013. Loved it. Hope to run in Paris one day.
Who inspires you to run?

People who love running! People who have a go and give their best and enjoy it! People who have pushed themselves despite the odds and keep going..

people who break new boundaries..

So many all around us, locally and in the broader running community…

So many to mention.. but Kathy Fuller and Narelle Pell currently!!! Those running angels are amazing!!

Deeks! And what he does now for indigenous runners!

Kurt Fernley.

Amazing local runners who inspire me with their commitment and goals, every week, so many in the shepparton runners club and beyond.. thank you!

What was the best advice you were ever given?

During a long run you will hit a bad stage..a difficult’s like life.. keep going, one step at a time and you will get threw it and you will even go through a wonderful stage too..
Is there anything else you’d like to share like a funny moment, or something inspirational?

The funniest sign I’ve seen when running was in Brooklyn during the New York marathon , it said “run like you’ve stolen something “..

Running is a gift. It is a gift that anyone can do. Running is a wonderful thing to do and you can do it anywhere. Fast or slow. It gives me the patience to enjoy the scenery, the strength to tackle any distance or fun run, the resilience to keep going no matter what and the joy of a running community like the shepparton runners club, opportunities of fundraising for events, organising events or the camaraderie of my running pals. Many friendships are formed and nurtured through running.

It is an amazing thing that anyone can try!
