It’s the season of awards, the Golden Globes, the Grammys and the SRC Grand Prix presentations. Most attendees wore a bowler hat; a gesture to support Garry Oldman in his bid for an Oscar.
Steve Hargrave won the men's Grand Prix for the 3rd time; Terri Howell, a relatively new runner won the ladies prize. Special mentions to Peter Lambert who despite his advancing years was the only man to run all five races and came 2nd overall, Gill Tivey who had another comeback and also came second, Michelle Hall who continues to improve coming 3rd and Simon Willington who had a great ten mile run taking many minutes off his PB.
Jane Matthews, Loraine Fozzard and Nicola Blatherwick completed the Edwinstowe 10K. Julie Stafford ran the Nottingham half marathon. Well done to Chris Cregg for competing in the Shipley Park cross country event.
I have been surprised by the number of people who know my identity and have urged me never to say I will never run again. Who knows what the future holds? I did run for a bus the other day, does that count?
