This weekend saw our club focus on the benefits to be drawn from simply enjoying running, and spending time together. Away from and without the pressures and expectations we can put on ourselves when lining up on the start line with a number pinned on our vest, as exciting as that can be.
Saturday morning saw many of our members experience parkruns in locations as diverse as Dudley and Perry Park near Birmingham. These proved the perfect starting points to move on to the National Running Show in Birmingham where other early worm members of our club had got a head start on finding the best freebies and flapjacks on offer. Other members represented the club at Market Rasen, Lincoln, Boston and York.
On Sunday morning an impressive number covering absolutely all abilities met at Chapel St.Leonard’s to run together. This was followed by a social cake and coffee catch up every bit as important as the running.
Other members racked up some very impressive training miles covering many of the Lincolnshire Wolds best hills either in solo efforts or small groups.
This weekend proved that racing and competitive running is only a small part of what Skegness and District Running Club is all about.
Being part of and feeling the support and friendship from like minded running friends is every bit as important as chasing personal bests or our own hopes or expectations. There will plenty of time for those in the running weeks and months to come which we are all looking forward to.
Skegness and District Running Club continues to be a fully inclusive club, offering dedicated training to runners of all abilities. We have training nights throughout the week in Skegness, Boston, Spilsby & Horncastle. See our Website for further details.
