So, … what’s next then ?

Extra, Extra ….. Hold the front page …..Read all about it, December 8th Andy Vernon will be attending Fareham Crusaders Training as well as a Q&A session after. Really looking forward to hearing his thoughts. We all know Andy as a GB athlete but he was also a local Stubbington Green runner in his early days.

After 4 marathons in 6 months it’s December and time to start thinking about what’s next. I’m looking at doing something different for a few weeks so the Victory 5 mile race, December 6th, may be 5 tarmac miles but it gives me a chance to run with 40 or 50 of my Fareham Crusader club mates.

Next, in a change to my normal routine I’m going to run with the 5.45 club on Wednesday. This run is a free community based event for anyone, once a week, organised by Nick from Absolute Running, a sports shop in Gosport. After hearing great reports from runners who belong to other clubs I’m keen to join them for a week. The offer is open to runners of all abilities in the local #community. I look forward to Blogging about it too.
