Heckington 10 Mile – 29 July 2017

Well done to Dave Waugh for completing this race, he wrote “part of the Heckington show, a two lap course around the Lincolnshire fens starting and finishing in the main show arena. Unfortunately, heavy rain the night before had made the grass areas a mud bath, but once out on the quiet open country roads, there was only a brisk breeze to contend with. I had booked this race as a warm up for the Newark half marathon where I am aiming to sub 1:40 for the first time. Unfortunately a stomach bug 4 days before didn’t help, and while the first 12k went ok, although not quite where I wanted to be , the last 4 were difficult. Still, I can take a number of positives from the run, finishing in 77th in 1:19:22 . Roll on the 13th August and hoping for a clean bill of health and a good run that day. Continue reading

Another crazy weekend at Thunder Run.  First special thanks to the support crew, the Hookway kids, the James kids, Martyn Walters, Jack Waugh and Peter Andrews (and everyone else).
