400m Personal Best for Sprinter Aaron Keane
 
Aaron travelled to Cork’s Munster Technological University to get in his first 400m of the season. Now with a few good runs over the shorter sprints under his belt Aaron was well set to step up for the longer sprint. On a windy evening which makes pacing the one lap difficult leaving a strong breeze into the athlete’s faces over the last 100m. Aaron also had to deal with a difficult lane 1 for this one. However he stepped up to the challenges and smashed his previous personal best by over a second to run a great 49.13 seconds. Training partner, Canice Whearty Oughaval AC Co. Laois who trains with the Tullamore T&F group travelled with Aaron and had a solid start to his season. Canice first competed in the 100m and ran a solid 11.61 into a strong-2.1 headwind. He then stepped up to run the 400m and posted a a good 51.31 just 0.1 off his personal best. So a valuable outing for the start of the season for both lads. Well done Aaron and Canice.
