How to start running and keep running

RV member Christine celebrated her 50th parkrun at Lee on Solent parkrun this Saturday.  As usual the RV members went along to support Christine and incorporated their long training runs with a 3 mile parkrun finish.  

The weekend was also full of mud!

Hundred Acre Wood 5k and 10k took place this weekend, Claire dressed up at Tigger for the Saturday 10k and by the time the other RV'ers were there on Sunday it was pretty muddy.  Lewis came 2nd in the 5k and Mitch 10th, so well done lads.  

The final countdown

Another snowy weekend that saw a lot of races cancelled, a hard decision for any race director but as we woke up to snow on Sunday morning it was obviously the right one.

Saturday was wear your pj's to parkrun day and despite the cold we had a few RV members who turned up in their pj's.

No PJ's for our RV volunteers :)

For the spring marathon runners it was their final 20 miler and it certainly was a hard one, 2 laps of a 10 mile course in the New Forest that saw freezing temperatures and snow blizzards.  Our runners were amazing and completed this tough, well organised race

Due to Eastleigh 10k being cancelled I organised an off road run on Wickham Railway line as I knew it wouldn't be icy.  We had great fun, we took our dogs and ran 10k, not many people took many layers off and tea afterwards was very welcoming
