Colchester Zoo Stampede
Four of our lot went to the the zoo, the zoo, the zoo, (how about you?) on Sunday for this half marathon. Last place gets fed to the lions, but fortunately that eventuality didn’t befall any of our lot. Unfortunately, Michelle’s Running Group has one less member this morning. 🙁
Plenty of members down at the Essex’ finest seaside resort (apart from all the others), for this club championship and Essex championship 10k race. We all moaned about the wind as we turned to come back along the sea front, but we had it behind us for at least half the race (and hence should be pace-affect neutral).
Special mention to both Brigid Wallen and Mark Austin, who won medals in their category. Great work both!

Let me know if I’ve missed anything.
Thought for the week:”You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take”
