A Marathon Month.....

On Saturday 13th, Stuart and Anne took part in the Pencaitland PTA 10K
Fun Run. Stuart finished first in 37:14 and Anne finished in 51:08.

There was much more serious running the next day as Rhona Anderson ran
the Lochaber Marathon again, finishing 25th overall in a time of
3:08:32. Rhona was 1st in her category and third female - another
great run. On the same day, Neil Jones ran in warmer temperatures as
he competed in the Brighton Marathon, finishing in 3:58:59, and coming
back home with a sun tan.

The following Saturday, Ian Sills and Jane Timms represented Scotland
in the Czech Republic, running in the Pardubice Half Marathon. Ian
finished 41st overall in 1:19:49 and Jane finished in 2:02:18.

The next day saw Mary Wood and Karen Page running in the Virgin London
Marathon in higher temperatures than they have trained in (and less
blowy). Mary finished her first Marathon in an excellent time of
3:31:07, with Karen taking a significant amount off her previous
Marathon time finishing in 3:48:42.

On 27th, Lee Curtis ran the 59th Annual Three Peaks Fell Race,
finishing the challenging course in an excellent time of 4:23:17. The
following day, Richard Taylor competed in the Marathon of the North in
Sunderland, finishing in 43rd place in 3:11:16. On the same day,
Stuart and Anne were battered by wind, rain and hail while running the
Heaven and Hell Half Marathon in Perth. Stuart lead from the start,
winning the race in 1:23:26. Anne finished in 1:58:14, winning her
age category.

A good running month with a lot of miles covered.
Flying the flag...
