Weekly Review – Week Ending 16th February

After Storm Ciara last week it appeared that people were just a bit bored of storms as Dennis arrived and we all just carried on training in the wind and rain.

There were a couple of races this weekend, starting with David Mackie and Andrew Wood at the Vale of Ewyas Fell Race, 24 miles of mud and hills in southern Wales, thankfully on the Saturday before the weather got too bad, although it looks like Andrew may have just finished in time to retrieve his car.

And on Sunday we had 2 of our members at the Chilly 10K at Castle Combe. Christopher Siggery set a PB of just under 42 minutes, will be great to see what he can do in favourable conditions and Alison Graham had her first race for a long time but she hasn’t lost her abilities as she was first in her category.

And finally, we also had our latest full moon run as 22 people met in Yatton Keynell for a 5 or 6 mile run around the lanes and fields towards Castle Combe and back again. Unfortunately, David Mackie managed to pick a day without the full moon!

Picture is from my Monday morning run when the full moon did make an appearance.
