It was a sunny, mild morning for Saturday’s Park run on 3rd December 2011, but it was still blustery on the top part of the course. Our first member back was Matt Marshall in 19.36, in another course PB by 4 seconds. Diana Kennedy was again first lady home (20.42) followed by first M50 David Engledew (20.53) and first M55 Carron Downer (23.25). Alex Leitch now nursing what sounded like a soleus muscle injury did 24.01 while Alison Engledew was first W50, third lady overall and again close to her course PB in 24.10. Rebecca Colquhoun was sixth lady in 24.59 followed by a small posse of members. This was led by Roger Brockelsby (Third M55) recording a course PB by 3 seconds in 25.36, perhaps with Sarah Everitt’s encouragement (25.36) with Paul Cook making his debut on the course in 25.42. Finally, Katherine Stickler was just 5 seconds off her last week’s course PB in 26.03.
Now here’s an interesting statistic. If you look under Club list you will find Bristol & West AC at its head. It appears that we are doing rather well!
