Aaron Hendrikx Obliterates LRDC Junior 3000m Record!

This is the second London Runner Distance Club record to fall this year (read my highlight of the first), at this rate Steve will have to revise the record books once a month!  This past Friday at the Hal Brown Last Chance Meet held at the University of Toronto, LRDC entered a select few athletes to compete in the 1500m and 3000m races.

Aaron's 3000m race seemed almost effortless as he slowly ate away at a 50m+ lead that Kyle O'Neill had built up in the first 2km.  The last km was less than spectacular for Kyle and Aaron sensed he could use Kyle to help him make up the ground, and make up ground he did!

With just one lap to Aaron had nearly caught up to Kyle and within the last 200m took a commanding lead to win the race in a blistering 8:30.52. And indoors to boot!

Congratulations Aaron, you beat your previous best by nearly 9 seconds and you have us all excited to see what you lay down on the track this summer. I had a great workout on Saturday, and there is no doubt in my mind that watching your performance helped ignite a fire within me.
