Alan - Great stuff. I've yet to watch the highlights but sounds like Alex ran superbly. I don't want to take all the credit but he did look confident after beating me at parkrun last week.
Really excited to see what he can do this year. Such a nice lad as well.
CC2 - Congrats on the county bling .
A little less bling for me at the Kent XC and a different colour but I was pleased with my run. A fairly tough, heavy going 12k around (the overflow car park for) Brands Hatch. My trademark slow start, but within the first couple of miles I'd overtaken five of my club mates and pretty much held position till the end to finish 31st overall, 8th scorer for the club. The medal was for coming 2nd team (12 to score). Tonbridge dominated team honours but club mate John Gilbert won the title for something like the sixth (?) time.
16 fairly hilly miles today, feeling a little creaky and doing all I could to keep up with MsP who was feeling "brilliant" after her individual County silver behind a XC international!
