Training group size
After we had 29 training at Parliament House this week, and 28 last week, I wondered what was the most we have had in a single training session. Excluding the small number of walkers which I did include in the count at one stage, I find that at Parliament House there were 30 runners twice, 20th September 2004 and 3rd March 2008. Elsewhere there were 31 at North Lyneham on Tuesday 12th June 2003. I feel a new record coming on.

I would like to see  our training group grow in numbers. Not at the expense of other training groups. I would love to see us exceed 100 participants each week. Can we accommodate 100? Yes, because the training can be adapted to suit most people who join us. Where will the numbers come from? Mainly from new people. And who brings in new people? Mainly the newest members. Go for it!

Theme for 2010
I'm still working on it! Stay tuned!
