What a start to 2018 for both!

“Happy birthday me. Starting 28 off right with a 3rd place finish at the Valentines 10K in Chessington ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿฅ‰ Haven’t raced this distance properly in over a year so I was expecting to die at 8K. But I overtook about eight ladies and found myself within striking distance of the podium with 10mins to go, and so I thought “What would Lydia do?”. WHATEVER IT BLOODY TAKES THAT’S WHAT. Nobody remembers who came 4th right?! ๐Ÿ˜‰”

 

Battling back from illness

Rachel B has had a tough ride over the winter months with illness but it’s been great to see her on the comeback trail! Missing her PB by only 2 seconds after a disrupted couple of weeks and on a pretty challenging course – The Lee Valley 10K – Rachel clocked a 45:58. ย  We can’t wait to see her tackle the Half Marathon next!
