Although whether you do it virtually or in an traditional race, the one thing that isn’t changing – its 26.2 miles with only your legs and determination to get you to the end.
On Sunday 4th October, there were OSR’s completing the Clarendon Marathon from Salisbury to Winchester & the Virtual London Marathon – run 26.2 miles wherever you like. One thing they all experienced was rubbish weather
Its not very often I go all fan-boy, but this deserves it.
Jo Miles PB coming into the handicap was 29:30, from January 2019. 5k round OS later and her new PB is 26:42, an improvement of 2:48. I think most of us would give up alcohol &/or cake &/or one of our less vital body organs to knock 2:48 off our handicap PB.
It seems like ages since we were all able to get together for a social run, a quick Handicap, or a Mid Week training session. To try and ensure we keep up to date with each other and maybe even get some ideas to keep our running (or other activities) fun and interesting we asked different members of the club to give us an insight into their lockdown thoughts. Some faces you will recognise, and some new members which we hope to welcome more fully in the future.
If you submitted your thoughts and have not been included below, look out in future weeks!
