Here Comes The Sun
Skegness and District Running Club’s last seven days of adventures got off to a triumphant midweek start with Angela Thompson being the First Lady back over the Hubbards Hills of Louth and beyond.
This was the third in the Wednesday Wolds Dash series. Although Angela characteristically modestly reported there were not many runners out, we were very well represented by Angela, Alice Hockham who was not far behind Angela as the second lady over the line finishing well up the field in 6th and 8th overall. Third over the hills was Chris Hurst who fulfilled the most important aim and just enjoyed his run.
Saturday morning saw James Willis, there may have been others who missed my radar, make sure our club made the Park Run records at the Belton House run. Finishing comfortably under 23 minutes in what can’t have been very comfortable conditions to run in.
Sunday Morning and eleven of our brave and fearless friends made the journey north to Caistor for the Sting in the Tail 10km. Sarah Thomas confirmed that the heat made sure it was a tough run but the plentiful water stations and hosepipes made sure no one overheated. The Dennett’s ice cream / and / or beer at the finish line was described as incredible and an absolute life saver. Extra kudos to Caistor Running Club for keeping everyone was safe and still enjoyed their run
Due to the scorchio start to the week we’re dealing with the sensible decision has been made to have a well earned rest in Spilsby on Tuesday night. Wednesday and Thursday should hopefully see our club nights in Horncastle ( Wednesday) and Skegness and Boston (Thursday) giving our members opportunities to run and just catch up with each other.
