On Wednesday evening we had the final session of our latest beginners running course and then on Saturday the graudation run at Sittingbourne parkrun. Another brilliantly organised park run and congratulations to Katherine Thornton on her run. We also had one of our Tristars running in that race and she knocked nearly two minutes off her PB. Awesome work and a very proud mum moment for Louisa-Jayne Viccars.
Also over the weekend we had a fair few members head up to the London Tri Show at ExCel. We ate enough protein bar samples to feed the 5000, checked out some beautiful bikes and tried on wetsuits. The general consensus was "good, but not great". It seems the manufacturers and retailers can't beat the online prices at the minute but it was still good to get up close and personal with the kit.
Then on Sunday we had a half-marathon runner! Thom is building up to a couple of marathons this year and looks to be in good shape. In his words, "Really happy with Tunbridge. 1:39:11. Smashed it. Even got a 10k PB in the middle. That big old hill was killer but just fast feet all the way and passed everyone. Had a wicked time!"
Onwards to this week! We have Tuesday night club swim, Wednesday night club run and then on Saturday it's Sittingbourne Park Run anniversary so they'll probably be a few of us there. Of course you're all welcome to come join us.
And keep an eye out for more event announcements, we have a busy year coming up!
