Sport continues to inspire the world. The Winter Olympics has had something for everyone. From the ice skaters to the cross country ski races. What about the one where the skiers have to stop and do some shooting? I may suggest that for our own cross country races.
Mud, mud glorious mud was the theme for January. The ladies love the mud. For the first time in 20 years SRC had a Ladies team in all the North Midlands races. Jane Matthews won a gold medal and Chris Cregg silver without having to go to South Korea bringing our medal tally up to seven. Well done to Nicola Blatherwick and Loraine Fozzard as well.
Chris and Paul Cregg were so fed up with the mud they ran the Singapore Park Run. It was 32oC at 7:30 am and humid.
SRC is offering its members some professional coaching. We have some runners who are aspiring to join the Tokyo Summer Olympics in 2020. I may be ready to run then and join them.
