We hear from Keith Gilbert who has finished the last of his September 10ks with a bit of a bang despite the odd hill!
on Sunday [19 Sep ] I ran in the Faversham 10k ,the last of my September 10ks. The route is very much orchard land and looked great with the passing autumnal hedgerows. The weather was fine too, sunny, not too warm and with a gentle breeze. Two moderate hills were encountered, one near the beginning and one towards the end. There was also one of those very sharp descents where you have to be careful not to go out of control when running with a wider stride. We also passed by Brogdale Farm , the national fruit centre that boasts nearly 3,000 varieties of fruit. On passing a banner announced it was Nut Day. The following weekend hosted a cider festival!
At the finish I was “chipped” in at 52:27, 205th out of 454 finishers. It was a good day with medal and T shirt for all finishers.
I have nothing else planned this year, so its back to the bike and woodland walks while the fair weather holds.
He wishes us all happy running – Ed
