Dave Arnold is back from Australia & NZ

Ed:Dave is back from his 3/4 months tour of Australia & New Zealand and has made an early start to the New Year with a view to get fit for the Southern XC Champs in Brighton on 28 January.

Ed:Dave ran the Hove Park Christmas Eve Park Run and the automated report from Parkrun stated:

Congratulations on completing your 4th parkrun and your 3rd at Brighton & Hove today. You finished in 121st place, the 103rd gent out of a field of 474 parkrunners and you came 25th in your age category VM45-49. You can view the full set of results on www.parkrun.com. Your PB at Brighton & Hove remains 20:04. Your best time this year remains 21:46.

Ed: Dave makes an early start to 2012 reporting:

And on New years day I did a windy 5mile race on the Brighton seafront. Small turnout. 7th place, 35.00 bang on! On Jan 2nd I did a 5 mile cross country in 39.44 but no idea of position. It was part of West Sussex Fun Run League, at Hillbarn Golf course Worthing. 3 in 3 days…a good way to start but probably not the best way to continue….
