This is the week that was…the start of the British summer!

The week began with the first of our summer trail runs....we went to Dunstable to enjoy the sun setting over the Downs whilst we frolick on the sunny trails.  This was the plan.  However, the rain came and didn't go away.  This did not stop us however.  We still frolicked. Through the mud.  The trails.  The wind.  The rain.  There was no sun.  But there were a lot of laughs.  The next trail run will be at Woburn next week, rain or shine!

The rain continued on Wednesday for JK's Fartlek and Thursday's Improvers with Coach Matt.  We had some respite for the Friday morning run...this must have been because Alan was leading.  He always brings the sunshine.

Friday evening saw Lee running his first official run as an LFR member at the Stowe Summer Trail Series 6K.  Well done, Lee!

On parkrun day we had LFRs at Luton Wardown, Milton Keynes, Northampton, Linford Wood, Houghton Hall (where Paul ran a PB and Stephanie came first in her age category!), Weymouth (where Gavin ran a PB!), Swansea Bay, Dunstable Downs and of course, Rushmere.

Rushmere saw PBs from Gary and Paula.  Great running, guys!  The big news of the day was Carrie completing her 50th parkrun!!

Anne was running another marathon at the It's Grim Up North Marathon on Sunday and a shout out and HUGE LFR CONGRATULATIONS to her sister, Claire, often seen running with Anne who completed her 100th marathon!  Huge achievement.  Well done!

And that's it for this week!  As usual we had lots of members out for the training runs, rides and swims.  Excellent efforts everyone in this weather.  Bring on the sun!

Have a great week, LFR!
