I should enjoy these quiet weeks while I can, I expect it will get busier soon, especially with the Slaughterford 9 next weekend.
I’m going to start this week by going to the Gloucester Marathon. After the disappointment of missing Abingdon Marathon due to injury after a solid training block, Lauren Edwards didn’t want to wait too long to get a marathon done and it was definitely worth it, a 9 minute PB at 3:41:03 and the fastest CRC lady at a marathon in 19 months. Fantastic Lauren.
The only other race this week was the Doynton Hard Half Marathon which saw the Mackies in attendance. Dave referred to it as a superbly organised event that is full of character. It is organised by ex-CRC member Neil Newman and the new club he set up at Emerson’s Green so we taught him everything he knows.
