Spring turns to Summer and all at once!
The temperature rises.
The sun warms our skin.
High numbers at training despite a large number negotiating the taper.
London is on the horizon with nervous and excited conversations taking place on the build up to the big day!
Saturday saw a record number of parkrun locations attended by club members. High temperatures resulted in huge numbers across the country, not least at one of our home locations.
Some headed West to tackle inflatable obstacles and foam to earn their prize!
The day was long but the sun did eventually fade leading into another spectacular day…
Club members got together to enjoy the tropical conditions but races were thin on the ground…
The first bank holiday of the year gave most of us an extra day to run without the constraints of work…
Some took advantage and headed north to Gilwern to tackle the infamous tough trail race with the almost vertical descent just before the finish.
As we end the long weekend and start the short week we celebrate those in our midst who will be heading to the English capital next Sunday for the event that draws plaudits from all over the world.
London Marathon is almost here again and the excitement is building…
New and seasoned runners will be joining the ranks and supporting each other on their journeys!
Let’s share in their excitement and enjoy the build up together…
Keep up the good work guys!
