It could have been a lot wetter than it was, but the rain obligingly dried up resulting in a not unpleasant run. Fiona brought along two new members to the group, so we ended up with baker’s dozen runners on this damp, cold night with Jack, Bill, Mark, Rachel, Rick, Fiona and her two friends Robert and Seb, Liz, Wendy, Helen and both Lesleys. So three new members to our little group, which is just grand.
A wet evening but still relatively mild, with freezing weather just a forecast away. 10k route enjoyed by Lesley, Mark, Fiona, John and Jack. No matter how hard I sometimes try to run slow, as in a taper period, these efforts amount to naught when running as a small group. It must be the dynamics of running and the psychology of winning that keep us adding pressure to the group in small, infinitesimal increments all the while and in turn and completely subconsciously. Result is we all end up pushing ourselves and enjoying the moment. Thanks for the run team BRC, I loved it.
