We have been away for a bit, so first things first and big congratulations to David Holmes who joined the 50 club a couple of weeks ago. I am pretty sure there will have been a flood of PBs in that period too, you know who you are, congrats to all.
This week saw five Striders at Albert park with Michelle Hart storming around to a new PB.
At Tees Barrage 12 Striders toed the line and a few more volunteered. Liz Simpson and Helen McIlvenny took second and third female home whilst both Michelle Station and Joseph Station took advantage of the ideal conditions along the riverside to post new PBs.
Elsewhere, we had four representatives at Stewart park. Neil McGee took a first trip to the Darlington event. Northallerton saw a first visit for Caroline Horton and a PB for David Horton.
I have no idea where Sherwood Pines is but Mike Cleasby became the first Strider to run there whilst picking up yet another new location in his current quest and taking the tourism award for this week in the process.
