Marathon fever had not left us on Monday with Peter and Pam both at the real Boston Marathon in the USA. Peter finished with a fantastic time of 3.37 getting himself a Good for Age time. And Pam was completing her final marathon of the six marathon majors! She has completed all the marathon majors being: Boston, Tokyo, Chicago, New York, Berlin and London. What an achievement...well done Pam!
We had a visitor at our Tuesday club run. Carol from Brain Tumour Research - our chosen charity for 2018/19 - came along to say a big thank you for the £6,308.40 donation we made to them and tell us all about the charity. Following this we took on the Out and Back route to The Hills. Excellent work from everyone.
Vicky was on the Fartlek Fun Whistle on Wednesday; James took out the Improvers for Pyramids in the Park on Thursday; and Michelle was in charge of the Friday morning run seeing the largest turnout we've ever seen on a Friday (see main picture) - anyone would think it was a Bank Holiday!
On parkrun day we had runners at Swindon, Milton Keynes, Minehead, Pennington Flash (where Debbie was running her 50th parkrun!), Houghton Hall (where Tom came in 1st bagging a 5K PB!), Wimpole Estate, Kingsbury Water, Workington (Len's in the right country now!), Penrith, Keswick, Barry Island, Erdigg, Littleport, Wendover Woods, Dunstable Downs, and of course, Rushmere.
At home in Rushmere Ollie, Jen, Karen and mini Stamp, George, all ran PBs! And Michelle was running her 50th parkrun!
We had runners making friends with animals in the sunshine this week with Anna talking to a French cow in a field and David chatting to the seals on a Norfolk beach.
There were no official events this weekend, but this did not stop LFR from getting out and about on their training runs, rides, walks and swims all over the Easter weekend from the Smith's 10 Mile, Janice cycling her furthest ever distance, Captain Dan falling over on his driveway, runs in Ashridge, Woburn and Nic running a half marathon PB training run. Excellent!
The Easter weekend was finished off this morning with a beautifully sunny run with Karen and JK around Ashridge. A fantastic turnout on a glorious day.
That's all for now. Have a great week, LFR!
