Thomas Donnet is one of Striders inspirational club members. He only took up running 3 years ago. He now regularly comes first in his age group in races in SE QLD. He races in the 65 -70year age category!!!
Tom holds down 2 jobs and manages to get all his runs in either early or late. He switched to the 10km this year for the first time since starting running 3 years ago and he has gone from strength to strength. His finishing time at the Doomben Half 10km was 48:12, which won him first place in his age group and beat a majority of the field as well.
Tom is perfect evidence that it is never too late to start running, and never too late to improve and never too late to achieve things in life. Congratulations Tom, you deserve all your running successes!
