We had a great turn out from the club at this event, with athletes from all sections of the club, Our Adventure racing division who added a little extra running to the days events by running home over Cratloe, Our Long distance crew who are building towards Majorca and our national series and run running teams all made the day a great one. What always impresses me is the turn out from our club members who are carrying niggles or aren’t down to compete still show up to make the day all the merrier.
As coach, folks usually hate me for adding in races or test days around the holidays, but it keep athletes focused and for those who loose focus, it reasserts the focus back into the minds. We all need to be reminded every now again of why we dont do certain things. A race against the clock or your peers will usually kick start any January mission.
