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.

    Some really great sounding races for 2016 and no doubt will be hard to pick which one to do or which ones to leave out… Either way though I’m sure it will very enjoyable!
