CHASE THE TRAIN 20/05/2018

 

Great finish line photos from Total Race Timing!! After missing the 1st water station as I couldn’t quite reach a cup, I had to hang in till Coltishall… which was tough especially in the heat, knowing my dad would be there…! When I arrived I saw my dad from a distance…. and my mum as well!! 😍 that was a huge boost, refocused, refreshed and energised I carried on with a spring back in my step looking forward to Coltishall Wroxham stage (which is my favourite bit) and the finish where in the photo below you can just see my mum in pink and my dad in striped shirt great race for them to see and made my day seeing them both there!!
Also had 9 other members there too, all doing very good times in the heat.

ROCK & ROLL LIVERPOOL1/2 MARATHON 19/20 MAY 2018

The Rock & Roll series of musical bias running weekends are managed by an American company. All centres are chosen for their musical heritage. Liverpool has been the UK city for the past 5 years. Having a marathon. Half marathon, 10 mile, 10k, 1 mile and various fun runs, there were over 70000 runners in the Liverpool One area. 22000 were running the half marathon with me. A fabulous course taking in all the sights of Liverpool, cavern, liver building, Sefton Park, cathedrals etc. All the hills are in the first six miles and the last three are on the shore of the great Mersey. I have ever attended a run that has such good music all around the expo arena and running course. All rock and roll, many beatles including the bootleg guys and all top notch. Today was bathed in sunshine with an ambiant finish temperature of 24 degrees, so pretty hot. No PB for me as still suffering from this chesty cold that is doing the rounds, so lost 8 minutes at the 6 mile point with a coughing fit and came in five minutes over two hours. Not happy but will take it in the circumstances. I would recommend this running weekend next year to you all. Hotels are close, all have car parks, you don’t need a car, lots to do and if you like music, especially rock and roll….. Book it for next year!

SILVERSTONE 10K 09/05/18

Organised by Silson AC, I believe I was the sole Jag representative to take on the Silverstone Grand Prix 10k amongst a field of more than 1600.  As an F1 fan, it was great to run this great circuit, while reminiscing about some of the great moments I have witnessed while running the old configuration.  After a awful winter of training, matching the speeds of Ayrton Senna, Micheal Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton was always going to be impossible, but a time of 45:22 was a great way to kick off my summer and return to running.  Really looking forward to returning next year, hopefully with a team mate or two.

STRADBROKE TRIATHLON 19-20/05/2018

Stradbrook sprint triathlon 20th may

This was advertised as a great tri for first timers ! And it certainly was ! The organisers put on training in the months before on all aspects of the 3 disciplines and both transitions.
Sunday morning was an early start from Norwich and a little chilly. Registration was straight forward and the race briefing was light humoured ensuring everybody was aware that the local council had laid on extra pot holes on this years cycle route.
Start time of the swim was 8;30am women first followed by the men at 30 second intervals. The bike ride was 17k though local countryside, a little undulating but very pretty scenery. The run was a 2 mile was around a field, a bit rutted under foot because of the dry weather.
Crowds were small as this was a local and fairly small event with 119 finishers. The marshals were friendly and helpful, there were changing facilities available and as entrants were small, readily available. In an effort to be greener, at the finish was my own bottle of water and a medal.
This event was just as advertised small, friendly and great for the first time triathlon. I would definitely recommend it and will be entering next year.

GT YARMOUTH 5 MILE SERIES RACE 2 09/05/18

The temperature in Yarmouth was about 8 degrees cooler than when I had left home in Lingwood and with a cool sea breeze it promised to be more challenging conditions to race in than for race 1 two weeks before.
I was running this race with a young lad by the name of Rory Fairfoot, who has learning difficulties and attended the same school as my son Chris.
Rory started running with his Dad Monty a few years ago before Monty tragically lost his life at far too young an age. Since then he has really taken to running with support from his Mum Jenny and sister Ellie, who recently completed the London Marathon raising over £7,000 and I’m sure his Dad would be very proud. Mum Jenny can no longer keep up with him, so she was pleased when I offered to run this race with him. Based on what Jenny said I had anticipated that Rory may be able to complete the race in about 40 minutes and set up my watch accordingly. Rory has no speech, but can understand instructions and after making sure he was ok and understood who he was running with Jenny left us to watch the race.
It was cold waiting for the race to start, but at last we were off and Rory set off quicker than I was expecting and I ran alongside him encouraging him not to go too quickly. The first mile was easy with a tailwind, but as soon as we turned at the Waterways we faced a stiff breeze that was unrelenting all the way down to the Marina Centre. Rory slowed down significantly and I offered him some words of encouragement that we would soon be out of the wind and pointed out the mile markers so he understood how far we had run and how far we still had to go.
We turned at the Marina Centre to head back up to the Waterways on lap 2 and the pace picked up until without any warning Rory slowed and started to walk as we passed the 3 mile marker. Running into a headwind must have taken more out of him than I had anticipated and after walking for half a minute I encouraged him to start running again. We did, but then we faced the headwind all the way to the finish and Rory slowed to walk again as we reached 4 miles. After another half a minute recovery we started to run again, but I could tell he was finding it hard as many other runners started to catch and pass us as we neared the Marina Centre again. Finally the finish line appeared and when I pointed this out it definitely spurred Rory on as he made a strong finish.
We finished with a time of 43:17 and after collecting our medals and some water we soon saw Mum Jenny with a big beaming smile. Like me she was a little surprised that Rory elected to walk a couple of times, but when I explained how hard the conditions were it was put down to that. It was great running with Rory and is something I will definitely do again. Now if only I could get Chris to do the same…….
There were some great performances by the other 27 Jags who ran the race, with 10 PBs, age group records for Emma Blake and Nicola Lambert-John and second in age group for Elly Young. Well done everyone and here’s looking forward to race 3!
