MUSIC

Those of you who train while listening to music (never race!) may find this of interest.
 
 
Interesting that it doesn't rate jazz for running (explains a lot).

TOUGH OF THE TRACK...

Bored of a plain white vest with a crappy green stripe? Really want to stand out in the crowd at the start line?
How about an "official" Alf Tupper "You've had you chips" tee-shirt?
Details HERE
 
There's also a few Alf stories on there as well.
 
Please note: Dunbar Running Club regrets it can not enter into correspondence speculating on the similarity between Alf and elderly running club luminaries.

Another PB for Theresa

Sunday the 11th saw the running of the 22nd Inverness Half Marathon, a
popular race attracting a large number of runners with 1150 completing
the course on the day.

Theresa Leslie achieved her second personal best in a week, after her
performance at the Lasswade 10 mile the previous Sunday, finishing the
course this time around with a time of 2:00:18. Now there's the
Forthside Half to look forward to!

A Couple of PB's....

It was a busy weekend for some runners with the Scottish Athletics
National Masters Cross-Country Championships taking place at Bathgate
on Saturday and the Bupa Murrayfield Hospital Lasswade 10 mile road
race on Sunday.

At the Balbardie Park of Peace, the venue for the Masters, the ladies
race was won by Susan Finch of City of Glasgow, with Anne Hay of
Dunbar Running Club finishing in a respectable 27th place. In the
men's race there was a bit of inter-club competition between Ian Sills
and Ian Rowland, with Ian Sills managing to pull away on the final lap
to finish in 38th place overall in a time of 38:04 – 11 seconds ahead
of his club mate. Stuart Hay finished in 40:57, with Richard Taylor
finishing in 42:35. The Rev. Keith Mills of Dunbar also put in a good
effort to complete the tough course.

The Lasswade 10 mile the following day was a good course, slightly
changed from previous years, but still a challenging, somewhat hilly,
route. Ian Sills came in 11th overall with a time of 59:08, with
Stuart Hay finishing in 63:46, and Steve Pattison achieved a personal
best, finishing in 69:22. Anne Hay finished in 75:06, Mary Ennis in
81:05, Jenny MacFarlane in 89.42 and Theresa Leslie in 93:26 - all
also having fairly good runs with Theresa also achieving a personal
best for the distance. Well done everyone!
