Club Run – Tues 26 Jan 2016

Social running at its best tonight. The nine of us, that is Jack, Sandy, Wendy, Dave & Lesley, Bill, Liz and John Mac, went out on the popular torch run around Crathes Castle and back. At 11 degrees centigrade, it was a positively barmy right here in the middle of winter. We ran as a large group, stopping here and there to catch up. Then to cap it all we ran into Steve, Shelley, Janette and Gordon out walking their dogs and getting stronger after their respective operations. We hope to have you guys running with us again sometime soon.

Club Run – Thurs 21 Jan 2016

Lesley drove us up Corsee Hill not once, not twice, but five times! Enthusiastic participants were Bill, Jack and John. Milder weather with temperatures creeping above zero made for another pleasant evening in Banchory.

Club Run – Tues 19 Jan 2106

By the time Jack arrived at 7.30 most had already finished. Also-rans were Bill, Helen, Ali, Wendy, Lesley, Young Lesley, John Mac and Andy. A few icy spots evident, but nothing of any consequence.

Club Run – Tues 12 Jan 2016

A superb turnout on a wet evening with John Mc, Jack, Bill, Ali, Helen, Liz, Paula, both Lesley’s, Paul and Wendy. As it happens the rain soon stopped and we all enjoyed a pleasantly mild and wind free run. Ramsay road was dark without lights again so in future we’ll take an alternative.

Club Run – Tues 5 Jan 2016

I was reminded tonight of the old adage that we rarely regret going out on a run, but we might well regret a decision to stay at home instead. All-weather runners Lesley Cheyne, Lesley Young, Paula, Jack, Wendy and Mark Mosgrove enjoyed the 8k winter route in persistent rain.

After the first half mile or so, the heat generated within keeps us warm as toast inside our technical  garments, so there is no excuse to stay at home. We certainly enjoyed it and shared ideas and plans for the running year ahead.
