Cardiff Bay 5 miles, 3/5/2011

Ed: Helen Watkinson reports on the meet-up of a growing VRUK group in the area:

Bank Holiday Monday saw the return of the Cardiff Bay 5 mile race. Cedric and I met up with members Kevin Jones and Michelle Rivett and flew the flag for the Vegan Runners in South Wales!

It’s a scenic course which includes going out along the barrage then back to the start/finish area outside the Welsh Assembly building. You’d expect that if the wind is in your face on the way out over the barrage it would push you back to the finish on the way back over the barrage – but sadly not – we where battered from all directions! Kevin and Michelle had completed a 20mile training run 2 days earlier for the forthcoming Edinburgh Marathon so it was great to see them there in such good form. Cedric and I got PBs and I’m not sure if Kevin and Michelle have raced this distance before so maybe it’s PB’s all round!!
