I haven't entered yet, but I shall.

Last night's training attendees: Abi, Andy, Caroline, Colin, Craig, Emma P, Ewen, me, Helen, Katherine, Kym, Mick C, Neil, Ruth, Susan, Suzie, Warrick. A great speed endurance session.

Some results from Friday's Customs Joggers 5k:
Tim Calver 19:12
Yili Zhu 21.45
Bronwyn Calver 23:53
Caroline Campbell 28:22


  1. Customs Joggers "6k"??!

    that's a PB for that distance then for me! ;-)

  2. This was because Emma P thought it was 6k when I ran last and congratulated me on a great run of 25 minutes.
    Now that you have let the cat out of the bag I have changed it to 5k.

    Alternatively, this was just another seniors moment by yours truly.

  3. I'd been thiking of running Weston Creek half marathon - did it a couple of times years ago - but just won't be ready this year.

    Trying hard to make it to the Women & Girls 5km and then the Y of CRC half; only time will tell if I make it to either one...or both!

  4. I shall cheer you on in the WGFR. But I shall be running the half in April, providing MY old body is ready.
