Alex Cooper braved the alarmingly titled Boxhill Ballbuster and took twenty minutes off his personal best! Fantastic!
I took part in the Brentwood half marathon last weekend along with skipper Seb Balcombe, Tim Smith and Laura Turner. Tim finished a fantastic 91st (of over 2000) with a time dead on 1hr 30. Seb came in a minute later, I was another 12 minutes back and Laura popped her head over the line in a very respectable 2hrs 10. Well done all of us!
I thought 6 days would be plenty of time to recover for the Victoria Park Open 5. It wasn't, but I still finished. A good showing from the club saw Ellen Greaves, Colin Staniland, Alex Cooper and Jane Dennyson all cross the finish line with good times - Ellen came 8th in her category, finishing in just 31.40!
Well done to anyone else who raced this month, I can't give a shout out though as you didn't let me know. There's a really busy month ahead with our 1st London League outings as well as our Aquathlon - expect a HUGE report in a months time.
Best, Chris Skinner
