I can say without hesitation that today was our nicest Sunday morning of the year so far. There was an easterly breeze that provided some resistance on the railway side, but overall it was perfect for a run. Most sensible :-) people stayed home to acclimatise to the time change and also celebrate Mother's Day. However, we had nine keen runners join us to avail of the sunny morning for a run. Plenty of PBs too - well done Mark, Andrew and Mei.
We have had 122 runs since we started in Nov 2014. Many of them were on rainy days, but thankfully the rain stayed away today - replaced by a stiff breeze. Well done to all who joined came along today - a big welcome to our new joiner (Andrew). Plenty of PBs today too - the drier weather must have helped (along with the wind pushing you along :-) )
On another soggy morning, we were joined by thirteen keen runners for our 5k. This included two guests and two new joiners - welcome to you a and hope you enjoyed running with us - even if the weather was not kind.
What's it they say - March comes in like a lion and leaves like a lamb. It was definitely like a lion this morning - but not enough to put off our runners and volunteers (although we did occasionally ask ourselves why we did it :-) ) A huge thanks to today's volunteers for setting up and running the event in horrible weather. Also - well done to all fifteen runners who braved the conditions. Kudos to Toby who got a PB. A big welcome to Suzanne and Jessica - what a day to start, but it can; only get better from here :-)
