Sunny for Some!

The sunshine here yesterday couldn't compete with the heat of Palma de Mallorca where Ian Sills and Jane Timms ran the half marathon.  Ian finished 40th overall, 5th in his category, with a time of 1:22:55 and Jane ran a PB with a time of 1:58:09.   Closer to home, Rhona Anderson competed in the Aviemore Half Marathon, finishing 28th overall in 1:27:25 and 4th in her category.   Stuart and Anne took part in Rod's Memorial 10K in Berwick, with Stuart coming in 3rd and Anne being the second lady to finish.
The previous weekend was our own 10-mile race in which George Gilhooley finished 15th overall in 1:06:07 to take the 1st over 50th prize, with Rhona 3rd lady overall in 1:08:32 and newcomer Andrew Sheldrick having another good race, finishing in 1:19:48.
On the 2nd October, Stuart and Anne ran the Loch Ness Marathon, with Stuart finishing 35th overall with a time of 2:59:12 and Anne finishing in 3:51:04.   Sheila Morrison had a jaunt to Ireland and took part in the tough Causeway Coast Half Marathon on the same day, finishing in 2:34:10. 
The long awaited Rigg Race, postponed from the end of May, was a race of choice for Dr Neil Jones on 25th September, with Neil finishing in 44:52.
And now the wet weather is setting in, we can look forward to a few muddier races to come!
